COVID-19 One Year Later: A Letter To The End Of February 2020
Remember this time last year? It seems like it happened just yesterday and at other times, it seems like it happened ten years ago.
I remember February 2020 really well. We had our St. Jude Radiothon and I went to Las Vegas mid-month. Everything was completely normal. COVID-19 was barely mentioned. Fast forward a few weeks and everything shut down.
It is crazy to look back and see how things changed in just a matter of a few weeks. A few weeks earlier, I didn't even know a pandemic was possible and there was not a care in the world. Come mid-March, everything came to a screeching halt.
It is weird to look back on where we were a year ago, thinking about what we didn't know and how much our lives would change in just a matter of time. At this time last year, you could go to work or in public and blow your nose without freaking others out. You could leave the house without wearing a mask. You could go to concerts and dance and sing in a crowded space.
It's so strange to thing how much has changed in just a year. What is just as strange is how we are now used to our new way of life. I can't imagine what things will be like when we can go to a concert or go somewhere without wearing a mask. Just like it took getting used to all these new changes, it will take awhile to get used to now doing what we are not used to as well.
I do think we all learned so much over the course of the past year and I think we will all be better people for it when the pandemic passes.
As always, you can keep up with everything related to COVID-19 in the Twin Ports here.
