My son, Nik Nerburn, spent six weeks living in Worthington, Minnesota, doing a project for the Southwest Minnesota Housing Partnership. It involved creating a book that documented the lives of folks in an apartment complex that housed mostly workers at the JBS Pork Processing plant. He taught photography to the kids, photographed family weddings, ate at their tables and heard their stories and their dreams.
I visited him there. I met these kids. I met some of the families.
350 of the workers at the plant have now tested positive for coronavirus.
These are not just numbers, just as the now forgotten children and families in Donald Trump’s prison camps on our southern border are not just numbers.
Does Donald Trump know? Does Donald Trump care?
Can I get a haircut? Will the NFL season start on time?
