Strange Times

These times are odd, make no doubt. Here’s a few images to look back at someday and marvel at.

The curve we hoped to flatten
We cheered for the USNS Comfort arriving in NYC.
Soldiers in Israel wear masks.
As do dancers in Shanghai.
A German doctor poses nude to protest a lack of PPE.
A nurse in an N95 counter-protests the anti-lockdown mob in Denver.
We started wearing masks for errands.
And bought stamps when the post office was failing.
We learned about “ground glass opacities” which became synonymous with “positive Covid”.

And we thought the scare caused by SARS-CoV-2 would be over in mere weeks. There was still a lot to come. We did some things well, and will look back with shame on other choices we made as a nation. We didn’t have much information yet, but isn’t that always how these things are destined to go?
