Tell us a story; share your experience. Describe what the object or story you've uploaded says about the pandemic, and/or why what you've submitted is important to you.

The use of wrestling events to convince people to get vaccinated demonstrates a gendered response to the problem. What does a 'masculinized' approach say about rural and/or Appalachian culture? Is it now considered weak to comply?
