How are you doing? Need a quick pick-me-up?

Maryland Historical Society's blog reads, “Letters from the Homefront” account is part of our new initiative, Collecting in Quarantine. Personal accounts are some of the most powerful tools we have in understanding historic events in Maryland. Letters, diaries, and photographs of important moments in Maryland history, including the Civil War, World Wars I and II, the Spanish flu of 1918 and the Annapolis yellow fever epidemics of 1793 and 1800, help to provide glimpses of life during these times. Now, MdHS is calling on Marylanders to send their personal stories of how the pandemic is impacting their lives."

One of the Marylanders, who happens to be my son, answered the call, and his story "A Freshman's Guide to Quarantine" is up! It's actually a snippet from an essay he wrote on dealing with "Coronacation." Very proud of you, Danny.

Check out "A Freshman's Guide to Quarantine."

To quote the author, "Stay safe, stay strong, and care for each other."
