Will they do the same, or have manners become old-fashioned, some even sexist? Think back…which manners do you miss in others, and have any of your own now fallen by the wayside?

It is likely by now that most Retrospect writers have been fully vaccinated for COVID-19. As many of us look to summer, we ask ourselves “now what?” In some states, masks are no longer required, restaurants and bars are open, and sporting events and concerts are inviting us in. Think back … how did you feel when you were fully vaccinated? What was the first thing you did? How has your life changed? Will you travel and how will you get there? Perhaps you have a story to share about a different vaccination in your life.
