In the latest episode for my series with @time, I interviewed Kelsey - who is a 26-year-old nurse at a hospital in New York City. Kelsey spoke to me about the pressure and trauma she's facing working on a 100% positive COVID unit. PS: I actually met Kelsey through her mom, Pam who is a Wake-Up Call subscriber and wrote to me about the work her daughter was doing and how proud of Kelsey she was. ❤️

Beautiful.❤️Yanira Soriano met her baby boy for the first time after battling #covid19. Yanira had COVID-19 pneumonia earlier this month and had to be put in a medically induced coma as well as on a ventilator. She was on the ventilator for 11 days before her baby boy was delivered via c-section. Her baby was released in good health and tested negative for COVID-19.

I love this! Captain Tom Moore aimed to raise £1,000 by completing 100 laps of his 82-foot Bedfordshire garden by Thursday, his 100th birthday. He’s raised over 7 million pounds (equivalent of over $9 million dollars) for NHS, the National Health Service in the UK. He plans to do another 100 laps. "When you think of who it is all for - all those brave and super doctors and nurses we have got - I think they deserve every penny, and I hope we get some more for them too." said the Army veteran. Love you Captain Tom!😊❤️ And thanks to my friend @henriettaconrad for telling me about this story! 😘 Story via @goodnews_movement 📹: @telegraph

#FacesOfCovid: John "Jack" Ahrens died on Good Friday in his bed in Newton, Massachusetts just a few days after testing positive for Covid-19. Jack was a vibrant and curious 96-year-old (nearly 97!) who had an appreciation and respect for life that only strengthened with age. A self-proclaimed pacifist, he spent over two years in the Navy enduring some of World War II's most notorious battles (including D-DAY). He returned home deeply committed to creating and supporting peace on a local and global scale. Jack was open-mind beyond his years. He possessed an incredible level of patience and presence that made for an avid gardener, loyal friend, and deeply adored father. Jack rarely went a few hours without laughter and was always available for play, guidance or deep conversation! He was affectionately known to his 8 grand-children as "Bop Bop" and was so invested in his family that he would stay on for 3 more years after the passing of his beloved bride, Lois, to whom he was married for a blissful 67 years. He even started taking piano lessons for the first time, at age 94. During the final days of Jack's life, he was tended to by some of the most courageous, selfless and loving caregivers. They risked their health and safety simply to ensure that Jack was comfortable and that all of his beloved family could express their thanks and love on FaceTime. Particularly a man named Jason Last, who treated Jack as his own grandfather, coming in on his days off,  holding his hands and crying along with Jack's family... all of whom were aching because they could not be at his side.  Jason and Jack met four days before his death. They made heaven a place on earth during a dark time. Rest In Peace, Jack. You were deeply loved and you mattered. ❤️

My good friend Dr. Mark Pochapin, the Vice-Chair for Clinical Affairs at NYU Langone, (and Jay’s doctor when he was sick) is one of the many healthcare professionals around the country who is on the front lines of the coronavirus outbreak. Until recently, Mark was responsible for gathering physicians from different areas of expertise to help and care for patients that have COVID-19, a disease that he says "we're learning about in real-time." New York City has the most confirmed cases in the country, with 106,763 positive tests and 7,349 deaths as of April 13, according to a tracker maintained by researchers at Johns Hopkins University. Despite the numbers, Dr. Pochapin, who is one of the most compassionate people I’ve ever meant, has been amazed by how people in the medical field have come together."We are literally all in this together and I am so grateful for everybody." @time @nyulangone #time #interviews #doctors #covid19 #fronlineworkers #healthcareworkers

This is so so moving. Antonio Basco lost his wife, Margie Reckard in the #elpaso shooting. Margie was Antonio’s only family. Left without her, Antonio remains uncertain of his near future but has found support from his community. With no other family, he called for the community to join him in saying goodbye. They answered. During a prayer service for Reckard at La Paz Faith Center in Central El Paso, Basco was engulfed in love and support. The packed church holds about 500 and there was about triple that number outside. Flowers for Reckard came from all over the world. He entered the center to applause as he made his way around the pews. Hugged by many, he smiled. Bishop Harrison Johnson of the  Praise Temple Full Gospel Baptist Church said, look at all the friends you have, which El Pasoans clapped and cheered, some shouting, "we care”. Thinking of Antonio today and feeling so grateful for the love and humanity that still exists in the world. ♥️♥️ 📸 via @usatoday

I thought this was so cool! Meet the real life inspiration behind Ariel from The Little Mermaid! 🧜🏻‍♀️🐠 #Repost @historycoolkids Sherri Stoner served as the animation model for Ariel in The Little Mermaid (1989) as well as Belle in Beauty and the Beast (1991).⁣ ⁣ Ariel's lower lip biting and Belle's habit of brushing hair away from her face were both Stoner's mannerisms that animators later incorporated in to the characters.⁣ ⁣ Broadway actor, Joshua Finkel served as the animation model for Eric and performed several key scenes with Stoner in order to help the animators realistically portray the interactions between the two characters.⁣ ⁣ Ariel's personality and body type were based on that of Alyssa Milano, who was starring in a TV show called "Who's the Boss?" at that time. Ariel's underwater hair was based on a combination of footage from Stoner's scene in the pool and footage of Sally Ride's hair when she was in space.⁣ ⁣ Stoner later went on to become one of the writers for Tiny Toon Adventures, Animaniacs and the voice of Slappy Squirrel, the elderly and grumpy tree squirrel.

During these challenging times it was so wonderful to take part in something joyful and full of promise. Last weekend, my close friends Pat, Laurie, Charlie and I threw a pretty swell engagement party for Ellie and Mark. We had a delicious buffet, some specialty drinks (Carrie and I made the signs!) and an ice cream truck! So happy for the bride and groom and our families! We are so very lucky. Let the celebrations begin! ❤️❤️❤️

This week in Mississippi, ICE arrested nearly 700 undocumented immigrants in the largest mass raid of ICE in American history. They raided chicken and poultry plants where men and women were working. It also happened to be the first day of school, and many of the people arrested were parents. Their children got out of school and had nowhere to go and no one to pick them up. “Our brothers and sisters, our fellow citizens - 6 years old, 5 years old, 7 years old, 11 years old - they left to go to school yesterday, excited about education, and terror hit them while they were gone,” said the Rev. James Evans, a cofounder of the Mississippi Immigrant Rights Alliance. This is horrifying and we cannot look away. We must acknowledge that this system is broken and needs fixing. This is 11 year old Magdalena Gomez Gregorio. Listen to what she is saying. We cannot ignore this. Some resources and ways to help: 📍Call Congress, your mayor, and local representatives - tell them you want upcoming ICE raids to be called off and detention conditions improved. Raices has provided a template and an online form that you can email to your congressional representatives. 📍The National Immigration Law Center has suggested reporting raids to local hotlines like United We Dream’s MigraWatch. 📍Donate to humanitarian efforts - United We Dream - American Civil Liberties Union - Mijente - American Immigration Council - Asylum Seeker Advocacy Project - Diocesean Migrant & Refugee Services - Families Belong Together - ProBAR - The Young Center for Immigrant Children’s Rights - Americans for Immigrant Justice - Immigrant Justice corps - KIND (Kids In Need of Defense) which provides legal representation to migrant children and lobbies to ensure their rights are protected - New Sanctuary Coalition - Las Americas in El Paso - Raices - Denver Immigrant Legal Services Fund - Pueblo Sin Fronteras: this group provides humanitarian aid & shelter to migrants on their way to the US - The Florence Project: Ari

Four years ago, I executive produced this important documentary on the history of gun violence in this country. It was incredibly eye-opening for me, and while I did not agree with all the editing decisions, the information here is so important. I hope you'll not only watch the trailer but take time to watch the whole documentary, which you can stream on iTunes, Epix, and Amazon Prime. #underthegun #documentary

Just 13 hours after the Walmart massacre in El Paso, Texas, another gunman opened fire outside of Ned Peppers, a bar in a popular area of Dayton known for its night life, popular with college students and heavily policed - killing 8 people and injuring countless others. The gunman was killed by police as he tried to run into the bar. At a vigil following the shooting, Republican Governor Mike Dewine was addressing the crowd when shouts of “Do something!” erupted. People continued to shout “We are tired of vigils!” and “What do we want? Gun control! When do we want it? Now!” We need to #DoSomething and can do something by texting CHECKS to 64433 to demand a vote on universal background checks. 📹: @washingtonpost #guncontrol #guncontrolnow #dayton #ohio #thisisnotnormal #takeaction #washingtonpost #news #protest #dosomething

On Saturday morning, a gunman walked into a Walmart in El Paso, Texas where people were shopping for groceries and back to school supplies. He killed 20 people, and wounded 27 others. A “hate-filled, 2,300 word anti-immigrant manifesto” was posted just minutes before the shooting on 8chan - an online platform which has become a go to resource for violent extremists (and in the past 24 hours has been shut down by its creator.) At least three mass shootings this year - including the mosque killings in New Zealand and the synagogue shooting in California have been announced in advance on 8chan - which has become known as a forum for racist, white supremicist rhetoric.  Democratic candidate and El Paso resident Beto O’Rourke said “I’m saying that President Trump has a lot to do with what happened in El Paso yesterday…he sows the kind of fear, the kind of reaction that we saw in El Paso yesterday.” News is still developing on who the victims of this attack were - but here is what we know so far: ▪️Jordan Anchondo & Andre Anchondo▪️ 25 year old Jordan was a mother of three. She was killed while trying to shield her 2 month old son. Andre was 23 years old and was Jordan’s husband and the father of their 2 month old son. He had recently started a business in El Paso that built things from granite and stone after turning his life around from drug dependence and run-ins with police.💔 #elpaso #endgunviolence #rip

How much is too much?  Have these mass murders (and daily violence) become normalized by their horrifying frequency? Vote for people who support sensible gun laws. They work. No they don’t completely solve the problem. But stricter gun laws result in fewer gun deaths. Take action NOW. Text MITCH to 90975 to call your Senators and demand an emergency special session to #endgunviolence. 💔 @giffordscourage @momsdemand @everytown #thisisnotnormal #elpaso #ohio #enoughisenough

West Side Story, Sweeney Todd, Fiddler on the Roof, Cabaret, and Phantom of the Opera all soared with his magic touch. I interviewed Hal on the @todayshow in 1994 right before Show Boat opened! His vision, imagination and passion will be missed. #RIP and thank you Mr. Prince. #tbt #throwback #thursday #haroldprince #todayshow #interview

Love this! ♥️ Artists installed seesaws designed by two California professors, Ronald Rael and Virginia San Fratello at the border wall so that kids in the US & Mexico could play together. Rael says it was “one of the most incredible experiences of my and [Virginia’s] career bringing to life the conceptual drawings of the Teetertotter Wall from 2009 in an event filled with joy, excitement, and togetherness at the borderwall.” @rrael @vasfsf #repost from @hifructosemag #us #mexico #border #unity #immigration #art #love #news #borderwall #letkidsbekids

Thank you @lifeisgoodco for having me on your podcast, spreading positively and actually taking my suggestion and putting it on one of your great T-shirts! ❤️❤️❤️ (Of course the real question is why am I awake at 4:30am and posting this?????? 🥴) Photo taken last night. @johnmolner sleeping per usual. 😉

This is Stephen Luciano Romero. He was 6 years old. Last night, he was shot and killed when a gunman opened fire during the annual Gilroy Garlic Festival in Northern California. At least two others were killed, and 15 people were wounded. The festival remains an active crime scene, and a manhunt remains underway for a potential second suspect. This is the 246th mass shooting in the US THIS YEAR. I am sickened by this, we all should be. This is unacceptable. Don’t be sad. Get angry. Elect officials at the local, state and national level who care about common sense gun reform and are brave enough to do something about it. 💔 #gilroygarlicfestival #gilroyshooting #news #rip

Elinor Tully Monahan!!!! Happy Birthday! This is going to be a great year. I’d write a lot of mushy stuff but not everything is for public consumption even though my followers feel like family. As the great Debby Boone would say, “You light up my life.” ❤️ 🎁 🎂 🍰 💃🏻

Billy Porter is almost as well known for his stellar red carpet fashion choices as he is for his starring role as Pray Tell in @poseonfx - the smash hit show about NYC’s underground ballroom culture in the 1980s. We recently met up at @csiriano’s The Curated NYC boutique for a candid interview. He told me how his remarkable voice helped him gain his family’s acceptance as a child. “So it became: ‘Just sing as loud as you can and as high as you can and for as long as you can until you could get out,’” he told me. “And I did.” @theebillyporter #billyporter #pose #interview #inmyorbit

Today in Wake-Up Call, I caught up with @todrick, who you may remember as the singer with the “complicated order” at @mcdonalds who went viral back in 2010. I’m OBSESSED with this video, and I think it will make you all smile😊(especially the back up singers and reaction of the woman behind the window!) Since then, Todrick’s career has skyrocketed and he has become a collaborator with @taylorswift and is heading to #broadway! Read our full interview in Wake-Up Call today! #mondaymotivation #monday #todrick #taylorswift #mcdonalds

Today marks 50 years since humans stepped foot on the #moon. Americans of a certain age (ahem), all remember where we were when the astronauts in that spacecraft walked on the moon.

By the way, I’m 62 and I’m good with it. I don’t need a Russian app to show me what I will look like. I’m proud of my age, what I’ve done, what I’ve learned and how I continue to live my life. We are lucky to age. Every.single.day. It’s a cause for celebration not shame. It’s about time we understand another ism that can lead to prejudice, discrimination and marginalization. It’s unacceptable. Am I right? 😊 #mytwocents #ofcoursenofilter PS this is the subject of an upcoming podcast (Yes it’s coming back!) and I’m fired up!!! 🔥 😊

Hey y.all.

Today is the 20th anniversary of the plane crash that claimed the lives of John F. Kennedy Jr., Carolyn Bessette and her sister, Lauren Bessette. A couple of months before his death, I sat down with John F. Kennedy Jr. on the @todayshow for what would turn out to be his last TV interview. I remember being so excited to interview him because like so many others, I had a giant crush on him! On the day of our interview, he rode his bike to the studio at 30 Rock, which was pretty typical for him. Speaking with John on camera, he was kind, self-effacing, and surprisingly open. He spoke freely about a lot of very personal things, from his relationship with his mother, to whether he thought his father would be proud of his career. I’ll never forget when, two month later, on a Saturday in July 1999, my late sister Emily called me to say that John had died in a plane crash. Three lives ended that night; so heartbreaking for their families. But for the country, the hope and promise of Camelot seemed to be extinguished for good. #jfk #johnfkennedyjr

#Repost @nytimes: President Trump, under fire for comments that even some Republicans called racist, amplified his attacks on 4 Democratic congresswomen of color on Monday. “They’re free to leave if they want. If they want to leave, that’s fine. If they want to stay, that’s fine,” @realdonaldtrump said, referring to Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, Rashida Tlaib of Michigan and Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts. This comes a day after he said they should “go back” to the countries they came from, though all but Omar were born in the U.S. At a news conference on Monday on Capitol Hill, @ilhanmn, @ocasio2018, @rashidatlaib and @ayannapressley responded to Trump’s comments. “No matter what the president says, this country belongs to you. And it belongs to everyone,” said Ocasio-Cortez. What did you think of their remarks? I want to hear from you all👇🏼 #news #aoc #presidenttrump #pressconference #congress #dc #politics

Like many young Americans, Maluca grew up with parents who had a very specific idea of what the "American Dream" looked like for her; get an education, get a job, get married, have kids. But that's not the timeline Maluca has drawn for herself. Watch @skii's #ChangeDestiny film, "Timelines" to see how Maluca defines her own destiny and figures out with her mother Liz what’s most important: a plan or a dream? Can you relate? #timelines #skiipartnership
