Words cannot describe how horrendous this day was for the USA because of what was going to happen when the pandemic hit. Probably worse than September 11, 2001.

I'll never forget this day, it was absolutely crazy.

The craziest days of our lives, from Sarah Palin rapping in a bear costume on a reality TV show, Tom Hanks and his wife contracting COVID, and Harvey Weinstein's sentencing, and a certain speech following the bear singing reality show.

It all felt so scary at the time. The anxiety I felt when countries started closing down.

RudigerValenzu1

One of the most craziest days of our lives as things started to shut down throughout the day and in the weeks to come. And to some, it felt like the end of the world had already come.

One of those days that turned into a bummer, just hours after cheering for the Harvey Weinstein verdict and within minutes of laughing at Sarah Palin on The Masked Singer.

My life was starting to go downhill after this day. It was literally the end of an era. I have had PSTD ever since 2020 started.

I remember all the anxiety everyone felt at the time thinking the world might be coming to an end on this day.

Damn, it's very surreal and depressing to think that this was literally the end of an era. The beginning of the COVID Age. RIP to our normal lives. I think we can agree that this is where the 2010s decade ended culturally. 3/11/20 was the official end of the pre-covid days, our lives were never going to be the same. Little did we know that things were about to get real. My life has never been the same since the pandemic hit. I have nightmares and PTSD just thinking about how "2020" went. In retrospect, I can't believe how stupidly optimistic I was on New Year's Day, thinking that "2020 was going to be one of the best years ever" smh little did I know how it "actually" went. 2020 was one of the WORST years of my entire life.

I was 8 when the first ever case of COVID broke out in China. I was about to turn 9 when things were really starting to escalate (my birthday is in April) and I didn't even know what an outbreak/pandemic was, so I was wondering why we had to stay at home, and my older sister told me.

Take me back to March 11, 2020

Ready for a walk down memory lane?

The date is March 11, 2020, and it's a Wednesday. Anyone born today will have the star sign Pisces. It is "Hump Day", so many are beginning to think about the weekend ahead.

Spring is creeping in, and the evenings are starting to get brighter. In America, the song "The Box" by Roddy Ricch is at the top of the singles charts, while "Blinding Lights" by The Weeknd is the number-one song in the UK. Donald Trump is the President of the United States, and the movie Onward is at the top of the box office.

Boris Johnson is the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. On television, people are watching popular shows such as "Westworld", "Barry", "Yellowstone", and "You". A new respiratory virus called Covid-19 is starting to become a reality for many people in the western world. Countries are going into lockdown and closing their borders. Sports and other events are also being cancelled. In America, several states have issued stay-at-home orders.

If you were to travel back to this day, notable figures such as Kenny Rogers, Little Richard, Shad Gaspard, and George Floyd would all still be alive. People are playing video games such as "Metro Exodus", "Days Gone", "FIFA 20", and "Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order". Kids and teenagers are watching TV shows such as "Horrid Henry", "Nella the Princess Knight", "Big City Greens", and "The Casagrandes".

Children are playing with toys such as the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One.
