This episode of Achona: Beyond the Article is being submitted to the NPR Student Podcast Challenge and is, therefore, shorter than usual.

Editor-in-Chief Mei Lamison, Senior Staff Writers Casey Martin and Reagan Finch, and Multimedia Editor Adriana James-Rodil (’21) discuss, via FaceTime, how history will remember COVID-19 in the midst of this pandemic. Similar medical crises have occurred, most recently the 1918 Pandemic Influenza (Flu) and the SARS Outbreak in 2003, but younger generations have not experienced such a universal, yet isolating and fear-invoking event — until now. Nonetheless, this pandemic strikes at a time when various forms of technology are in homes across the world which allow people to stay connected. Regardless, however, lives have been lost and traditions such as senior skip day, running of the halls, and even graduation will not be experienced. Although a universal and even uniting experience, it will, nevertheless, be remembered differently by every individual. So, the question to ask yourself is: how will you remember COVID-19?
