From a historian and genealogist point of view... right now, what we're going through with the COVID-19 pandemic is a part of living history... and it includes EVERYONE! No matter gender, age, race or financial status.
And just like when JFK was shot, when the first man landed on the moon, and 9/11 ... people will talk about this for years to come ... generations even.
Our schools are closed, businesses shut down, necessities and food shortages, sports and event cancellations, and people are quarantined on a GLOBAL level! Thousands have died all over the world from this. Document it now! Whether you are an adult or a child. Keep a journal and document your feelings and thoughts. Handwritten or typed. Attach photographs or draw pictures of what you see or how you feel. Make a video, write a poem or song. Just write down ... document in some way what you're feeling... scared, worried, mad. Document your daily activities. What did you do for fun, safety, or sanity? Write about how you feel having to stay home... or if you didn't stay home. Did your school year-end early? Was your graduation year forever changed? Explain how serious or not serious this is to you. If someone you know caught the virus, how did you react or deal with it? Interview someone in person, virtually, or by phone. How are they dealing with this situation? How do you feel being away from the ones you love?
Record your life during this pandemic. This is history in the making. And we're all a part of it.
And then save it when it's all over. Take good care of it. Tuck it in with the other family mementos and precious memories. But save it for generations to come. Your grandchildren and great-grandchildren will learn from it. Help create a first-hand account of your life.
