Capturing your memories!
THE LOCKDOWN LEGACY
The idea behind the Lockdown Legacy
It will only take a matter of months and this all-consuming pandemic could be a thing of the past, well forgotten. Certain generations will have no memory of it, some generations will choose not to remember it and others will never be allowed to forget.
The idea behind “The Lockdown Legacy” is to ensure that future generations and those too young now to remember in the years ahead, have a clear record and documentation of how it affected each and every one of us, world-wide. We may not have all been in the same boat, but for once the world was sailing into the same storm.
The book itself is full of tears and heartbreak, it is full of joy and laughter but the theme that runs throughout it more than anything is the theme of hope, hope and the future. We’re sure when you get time to digest it, you’ll agree what a fabulous read it is.
It shows how different lockdown was for everybody, even for people within the same families. For some, the restrictions of lockdown have been nothing more than a government-imposed inconvenience but for others it has been a life changing tragedy, the memory of which will never leave them. So many momentous occasions took place that we normally take for granted like a birthday, a birth or a bereavement, an anniversary or a wedding and we believe that having to go through these in isolation and lockdown, we have gained a new form of respect for them and how they affect us as individuals. A respect that we hope we don’t lose again. This book will help us to remember and appreciate what people outside of our bubble went through.
