How much we’ve changed since COVID 19

The other night I was selecting a streaming video of a late night comedian/talk show host. I was looking at March dates and began watching. The show was being filmed from the host’s garden and the host himself looked very pale and washed out. He began talking about COVID, which was certainly not unusual when it dawned on me that this was done in March, 2020, not 2021. No wonder he looked so bad!

Then he and his guest began to discuss the pandemic, saying “well in a couple of months when this is all over…”

What a good thing that none of us knew how long we would be dealing with this…

Here are a variety of web pages from the past year discussing various aspects of life since the pandemic began.
