Hartsfield–Jackson Atlanta International Airport


The image was taken at Hartsfield–Jackson Atlanta International Airport as the country went into lockdown. Masks were worn as people were afraid of this deadly disease coming into our country as cases were spiking in cities like New York. I was in my junior year of high school when we were told that school would be shut down for ten days. Those ten days went on to be the nation's lockdown. It was hard to accept the changes life was offering as people were terrified. Grocery stores were sold out of necessities, people scrambled to get home on flights, gas was low, social distancing was implemented, and healthcare workers were on the line of a rough battle. I was personally challenged with the new methods of learning as schools were online. It was interesting to see how students and educators had to adapt and learn together. Now in 2022 classes are primarily conducted online with homework, documents, communication, and even test.
