“" It was amazing to have music as the year ended. They [ZapOte] were calling out different cultures and national origins as families picked up their kids and I saw heads pop up and cheers as people heard our community called out in full. It was beautiful and perfect and it made me cry. After a year like this, all the joy was cleansing. ” - Maureen Flaherty
