If you’re like many of us, you have lots of photos and videos on your phone during these pandemic months of sheltering in place and social distancing, but how will you remember what it was really like? How will we record how #BlackLivesMatter has impacted our lives from now on? Especially because we each look at what is happening through such a different lens.

One way to make sure the moments and memories don’t fade is to start a journal or calendar and jot down thoughts and actions, while they are still fresh. A calendar will also help you match up your photos and videos with the important moments. If you have a family, doing interviews can start great discussions, and if you can record them, all the better. These articles might help:

“Activities and conversation starters during the coronavirus pandemic.”


“6 Questions To Ask Your Family And Friends While Social Distancing.”


There are also many articles and videos being published daily online about how to talk – and listen – to ourselves and with our children about #BlackLivesMatter. And there are many book lists as well.

Quite a year to experience and remember. If you’d like a lasting keepsake of this year with a video or photo album, we’re here to help. Please contact us at 203-329-2638 or [email protected]
