What might people in the future want to learn when they look back at the COVID-19 pandemic that we’re living through today? Will they want to see how we coped with public health guidelines and restrictions? How we adapted to changes in our day-to-day lives? What we learned through the experience of living through a pandemic? With this in mind, The Issaquah History Museum has launched the Pandemic Memory Book.
Looking back on our experiences today, maybe future readers will be surprised by the ways we responded to the pandemic. Maybe they will be inspired by our resilience, or surprised that we didn’t do more. Maybe they will look back and see how far society has come since, or maybe they will see the ways society has stayed the same. What do you want to be remembered? Share your experience with us and with future generations by submitting your own entry to our Pandemic Memory Book.
