“The incredible story of how 1,700 handwritten cards came from across the world for a group of D.C. hospital workers,” by Theresa Vargas (January 27, 2021).
[Jo] Rasi, who works for the Washington Revels and Carpe Diem Arts, both of which have long used music to bring people together, says she never expected the Daily Antidote to turn into what it has become. “We have a community of people who come into this room every day who have never met and who are all developing friendships now. At a time of division, it feels good to see people from across the country coming together.”
