“Just so I NEVER forget” Facebook Post
Represents the general United States population
This source is a Facebook post by a Springfield College student that lists the different aspects of life that have been changed by this pandemic. It ends with some inspiring words of encouragement and a reminder not to take things for granted, to be thankful, and to support one another.
I chose this social media post because it shows how this crisis has impacted every aspect of life, not just for the Springfield College student, but the population in general. It is important to preserve this piece as it mentions social, political, and economic changes, and serves as an encouraging reminder to be grateful and support one another. So much is happening in the world right now with news and information being released everyday, but I found this to be a good quick summary of everything happening at the point in time. It shows the severity of the crisis in a very straightforward way that also gets across the panic and fear that people are living through. This post resonated with me because it suggests that although everyday life has changed so much, it is a struggle everyone can relate to, and it is important to stay connected as a community and check in on each other to bring about positive change in the world. This is the first time most college students are experiencing a global crisis in their lifetime. Despite that, this post shows the leadership and reflection that Springfield College students can provide relating to the bigger picture through a sense of community and connection on social media.
