Girls laugh as they take a photograph with Reuben Ward, 29, of Delta, Penn., who is playfully dressed in a T-Rex costume that he got for his birthday, Sunday, March 22, 2020, at the Washington Monument on the National Mall in Washington. “There is so much joy and happiness brought through [the suit],” says Ward, who decided to dress as a dinosaur on a visit to Washington with his family, “it was a fun way to get people’s minds off the coronavirus for a while, let go a little, and brighten their day. See that life doesn’t have to be scary and we don’t have to fear imminent death just because this virus is going around. We can still find ways to smile and laugh.” (AP Photo/Jacquelyn Martin)
