4. This last one is tragic, but also about people coming together during the pandemic: A 22-year-old woman in Arkansas named Emily Robison died of covid last month, right after she had a baby.

A nurse named Ashlee Schwartz asked people on Facebook to help, and there’s a photo of Eric posing in his driveway with a mountain of baby stuff people sent him. She also started a GoFundMe page that’s raised about $25,000 to help him out.
