Description (Dublin Core)

This photograph was taken during the first virtual reunion that several friends and I had during the very early months of the pandemic, just before Easter 2020. We hadn't seen in other in several months, and although we had become used to this after graduating from Fordham University in 2018 and moving to different parts of the country, it was becoming clear that we wouldn't be able to see each other in-person for longer than we had expected. We decided to try using Zoom to have a movie night and had a great time watching Moonstruck together. We were all feeling the weight of the uncertainty and fear that was hanging over so many at this point during the pandemic. Yet, as can be seen from the smiles on our faces, finding ways to stay in touch with those closest to us helped to ease that anxiety and allowed us to find something of a sense of normalcy. We didn't know how pervasive Zoom would become as the pandemic continued: this would be the first of many reunions held in this way.
