Assembly Resolution No. 208
BY: M. of A. Rajkumar
        COMMEMORATING  the Queens Covid Remembrance Day to
        be held May 1, 2021, a day to pause and remember the
        residents of Queens  lost  to  the  disease  and  to
        celebrate their lives
  WHEREAS,  It  is  the  custom  of this Legislative Body to recognize
certain events of significance which bring the people of  the  State  of
New  York  together  to honor the memory and remember the lives of their
loved ones; the Queens Covid Remembrance Day is one such event; and
  WHEREAS, Attendant to such concern, and  in  full  accord  with  its
long-standing  traditions,  this  Legislative  Body  is  justly proud to
commemorate the Queens Covid Remembrance Day, a day of solemn reflection
for those lost to Covid-19, to be held on Saturday, May 1, 2021, at  the
Forest Park Bandshell; and
  WHEREAS, The Queens Covid Remembrance Day will represent both family
members  and  victims  of  Covid-19 from Queens, New York, who have been
tragically impacted by this life-threatening and  devastating  pandemic;
  WHEREAS,  On  this day, the many family members grieving the loss of
their loved  ones  vow  they  will  not  be  forgotten;  as  a  physical
representation  of  loss, there will be 400 empty park benches, each one
adorned with an artist's rendition of an actual Queens resident who died
of Covid-19; these images will be custom made by  the  "Faces  of  Covid
Victims" project; and
  WHEREAS,  To  remember  and  honor  Covid-19 victims from around the
world, yellow hearts bearing the names of lost loved ones will  surround
the  bandshell;  these  will  be generously supplied by The Yellow Heart
Memorial; and
  WHEREAS, The Floral Hearts Project will be creating an original  art
piece,  featuring fresh flowers donated by 1-800-Flowers and designed by
Kristina Libby; this will be a one-of-a-kind creation to honor all those
lost to Covid-19 and those left behind to mourn their absence; and
  WHEREAS, A tribute to the essential and frontline  workers  will  be
held  to  honor  all  those  who  spent  tireless  hours  caring for and
providing services to the Queens community; and
  WHEREAS, In addition, there  will  be  a  reflecting  area  and  art
display,  as well as a ceremony which will include an interfaith prayer,
and words of remembrance from Queens residents who lost  loved  ones  to
Covid-19; and
  WHEREAS,  Our  society  is deeply saddened at the loss of neighbors,
family members, and friends but grateful for  the  opportunity  to  come
together as a community and reflect upon the lives lost to this horrific
pandemic; now, therefore, be it
  RESOLVED,  That  this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
commemorate the Queens Covid Remembrance Day to be held May 1,  2021,  a
day  to  pause  and remember the residents of Queens lost to the disease
and to celebrate their lives; and be it further
  RESOLVED,  That  a  copy  of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be
transmitted to the Queens Covid Remembrance Day Committee.
