Whilst at the beginning of lockdown I was struck by how considerate and friendly people have become to strangers on the street (perhaps as a result of being deprived of contact with those outside of their own homes). As we have begun to re-enter society, it seems that many people have quickly returned to old habits.
Sadly, it looks like some of us need a reminder of what we have learnt over the last few months; an appreciation of smaller things, a slower pace of life, and a greater respect for those around us.
So here’s a note on returning to the world: Don’t forget your manners.
