Tomb Aiders

“There’s not going to be a parade for you guys.You’re not going to get discounts or big [thank-you] signs. The work we do, we do in silence. Not even the family members of the victims will know what we do. There’s a pride in that. There’s a silent pride in that. You’re taking care of someone’s grandmother, grandfather, husband, daughter, son, and that’s a higher calling … It’s a heavy burden … It’s a very heavy burden.” Luke Mullins: Inside DC’s Secret Covid Morgue. “This is the story of a secret disaster morgue—and the quiet force of civil servants tending to everyone we’ve lost to Covid.” (We spent the pandemic so focused on the villains, we missed the heroes.)
