Friday Photos: World, Interrupted

The old normal was just a few months ago -- and yet it can seem like forever. We asked friends and readers to share the last photo of "normal life" in their phones before the shutdown. This slideshow captures a world we won't likely return to anytime soon.

Support comes from

Ginger Meurer: Define “normal.” March 8, Disneyland. Counted the days after to assure myself we hadn’t made a huge mistake taking our long-planned trip. We didn’t get sick, but sure panicked plenty worrying. Still a great trip.
