Research by psychology professor Roxane Cohen Silver at the University of California, Irvine, has looked at how societies reacted to traumatic situations and found that communities became closer as people sought out the company of their loved ones and their neighbors. … “I do not believe we will ever go back to where we were on January 1, 2020,” Silver said. “But as we get further and further from that time, fewer people may remember how it was before.”
