31 Photos That Are Stark Reminders of Our New Reality

Remember when we were all saying that 2020 needed to go away? Well, it did go away, but things haven’t really gotten completely better. In fact, some reports say that we’re never going to go back to our old version of “normal.” My wife has already said that when she starts going places again, she’s just going to keep wearing her mask. She confessed that she would have liked to have done so years ago, as a matter of fact. Like most people, she’s miserable when she gets a cold or the flu and would just as soon avoid it if she can. So she’s in this for the long haul.

The fact is, our lives have changed, probably forever to some extent. These photos show our stark new reality.
