Winston Churchill is credited with saying, “Never let a good crisis go to waste” at the end of World War II. That is, when something bad happens, what can we learn from it? In this workshop, you are not expected to reveal details about your personal health or the personal health of anyone who has confided in you. Instead, this workshop is an opportunity to write about how the pandemic has changed the world in which we live. It has affected how we work, how we learn, how we play, how we navigate life. What observations and insights about the pandemic can you share with future generations?

Duane Roen has been tracing his roots since his teenage years, building a database with more than 32,000 ancestors. He and his wife, Maureen Roen, have also been recording their family history since 1978 by writing more than 19,000 daily journal entries on their children and other family members. Combining his professional and personal interests, Duane worked with colleagues to establish courses on writing and recording family history at Arizona State University. He also is founding coordinator of the Project for Writing and Recording Family History in the College of Integrative Sciences and Arts at ASU.
