From the Monitor's Finding Resilience series:

When Veronica Quiroga and her fellow students at Fordham University set out to interview Bronx residents about surviving the pandemic, they expected tales of woe. Instead, they found people kept using one particular quality to describe their experiences: resilience. Despite one of the city’s darkest eras in recent memory, the light of community, family, and perseverance shone through in the voices of the Bronx COVID-19 Oral History Project.
