Post Premium: Top stories for the week of Feb. 22-28, 2021 – The Denver Post

 

You’re not alone. It may seem like it, but you’re really not.

Who among us hasn’t felt isolated, felt lonely, felt hopeless at times during the past year due to the coronavirus pandemic, which led to a shutdown of schools, restaurants, arts, public life as we know it. Very few.

Approaching the one-year anniversary of COVID-19 hitting our state, The Denver Post wanted to look at the effects of isolation. To do so, we asked sports columnist Sean Keeler to tell the stories of everyday Coloradans and how they’ve attempted to cope. Those stories are in today’s Post Premium, stories of courage, of perseverance, of hope amid the darkness that enveloped our lives, keeping us home, keeping us from what makes us human, a handshake, a hug, a kiss. As Sean writes, one of our basic needs is each other.

We’ve all been alone. Too long.
