    Thank you Professor Song!

    I was especially inspired by your statement encouraging students to not only focus on what they must take away from themselves, but what they could gain from the experience overall. As a fairly recent vegetarian myself, I had not even considered all of the benefits of my new eating habits until I paused a moment to think. I have reduced my own carbon footprint, which was my original motivation, but over the last year, I have also learned to cook more creatively, made new friends, and become much more mindful of my relationship with food and eating. The more I think about it, I really have gained much more than I have given up, now including a new way to approach the idea of personal sacrifice when it comes to avoiding climate crisis! Recently, many of us have gained time with family, or exercised our own resilience. I wonder if there are more ways we can apply this thinking to what we have given up to reduce the spread of COVID.
