Snapshots of 2020, we have them all and behind some are the stories of an era of pandemic and polarization, progress, upheaval and everyday life - the visual representations of people's lives and 


 Associated press reporters went back to some of the people they interviewed during last year's news stories and asked a simple question: What image on your phone's camera roll tells YOUR 2020 story? 


 For the next three days, we share some of their answers in pictures and words, adding new ones every day. 


 The August 10 derecho that hammered Cedar Rapids, Iowa, with winds up to 140 mph severely damaged tens of thousands of homes and businesses and devastated the community's canopy. 


 Much of the city of 130,000 people remained. without electricity for a week or more. "Looks like they kicked us in the teeth pretty well," City Councilman Dale T Strange says. 


 But Todd says the lack of electricity and air conditioning caused something "magical": once distant neighbors have gathered to help as the city began a massive effort to remove the debris. 


Todd's family and neighbors gathered each evening for communal meals, first presenting meat that had to be used or would spoil. They talked about their days and looked at the stars in Todd's backyard without being distracted by cell phones or television.


In this photo Todd's wife Sara repairs the mask of her 21-year-old son Adam, who has severe epilepsy. Todd calls the photo a reminder of the "strong sense of community that has developed". 


 “This will get us through this pandemic with the economy over the course of next year,” he says, “and hopefully it can be a model for how we can rebuild our politics and our sense of democracy. “


When the home nurse Ruth Caballero sees an April photo of her wearing it She sees a feeling of pandemic protection equipment and sees a feeling,“ How scared I was. ”


 Wrapped in a surgical gown, a face mask, one Plastic cap and two layers of masks and gloves, she went to an apartment in New York City to see one of her first coro navirus patient who had just been discharged from hospital. 


 “I remember being dressed and myself said, 'Please, let me be as effective medically as possible to help this patient as much as possible. And please allow me to stay COVID-negative, "recalls Caballero, who works for the Visiting Nurse Service in New York. 


 Moments later, Caballero faced the ravages of COVID-19 and met an enormously debilitated patient who asked," Nurse, did you send me home to die? "


" No, they sent you home to live, "recalls Caballero," And we'll fight together. "


Caballero's cell phone photo is a portrait, one of many, of New York's fearsome battle against the coronavirus. in early April, she was accused of over 750 deaths a day in the city alone, but Caballero glimpses more of those desperate moments when she looks at that photo.


 Also think about how different she felt two or three months later, when that first wave turned has eased, the shortage of protective equipment has decreased, and he has gained experience caring for coronavirus patients and seeing them improve. 


 Since then, "I have been looking forward to providing them with nursing care," says Caballero, who has now worked with more than 50 COVID-19 patients. "I'm not afraid," he says. "Anything I can do to help them recover is one of my greatest joys."
