DETROIT (AP) — A large mural honoring a firefighter and other Detroit public employees who died from COVID-19 has been unveiled on the side of a building.
Capt. Franklin Williams of the fire department dominates the painting.
But there are images of a bus driver who made an emotional plea for protection from COVID-19 before he caught the virus, and a 5-year-old girl who was the daughter of a firefighter and police officer.
The mural is on the side of a building owned by the Arab American and Chaldean Council. Odie Fakhouri says the mural honors people who put on a uniform to fight COVID-19.
