When all is said and done and the “Great Pandemic of 2020” is a distant memory, do we point to February 17, 2022 and say “we turned the corner and everything steadily improved from this moment forward?”
Dear God, I hope so.
What is my evidence?
- The first daffodil. Nature’s indication of Spring. A sign of hope.
- The majority of students attending class in person rather than remotely for the first time during Winter quarter 2022. And all students, at least all that I believe to be actively engaging, in attendance.
- Metro Coffee, my favorite independent coffee shop, bustling with activity after class. So much so, that I took my 16 ounce nonfat latte to go.
May these trends indicate the first step towards a lasting and positive return to a maskless world of in-person interactions.
