“We love you, everybody loves you.
You’re loved by millions of people you’ll never meet.
You’re not a stranger to anyone.
These flowers are from everyone.”
— Michael Gittes
On July 26, Michael Gittes was featured on the television program Sunday Morning. Michael, an artist from Los Angeles, had painted a flower for each of the 1,800 employees at the Interfaith Medical Center in Brooklyn. The non-profit hospital was selected because its intensive care unit is treating coronavirus patients in an underserved community.
