What have you learned about yourself, your community, or our society in the context of the COVID-19 crisis? What have you started to question about the world we live in? Which important conversations should we
have in light of this crisis? Support your lesson(s) learned with specific examples.
Include at least four quotes from readings, films, and/or lectures in your essay. Be sure to use strong and precise vocabulary from readings, class discussions, lectures, and theoretical approaches.
