Mom told me about a video that she found ominous. It was called “The Great Realization”. Am I wrong in thinking of it as honest and maybe a little too optimistic?
I hope that, once we get something resembling normal back, that we don’t just go back to the way we used to be. I hope we can take some of the things we learned how to do and blend them in with the old things we miss and make a better normal. But I’m afraid that isn’t what’s going to happen. I hope I’m wrong and he’s right. Ack, what am I doing even dreaming about something resembling normal? I don’t think we’re there yet.
Maybe I need to watch it again, but I think you pretty much nailed it. It’s honest about the bad parts of us and probably too hopeful about our ability to learn from them. Cripes, we’re a year plus into the thing that’s supposed to change us and there are still plenty of people who haven’t managed to learn a damn thing.
