Postcard: Ducklings and banjo music

We've been living through a global pandemic for two years now. And we want to hear community stories to commemorate that anniversary.

So, we asked you: What moments will stick with you long after this pandemic is over with?

Today, we're hearing from two people about something that brought them comfort over the past two years.

Suzanne on Capitol Hill found comfort in the ducklings at Volunteer Park.

For her, observing the natural world brought a sense of peace during a time that felt, and sometimes still feels, really scary.

For Peter in Ballard, it was music.

And we'd love to hear from you: What's something, big or small, that's stood out to you throughout this pandemic that you want to hold on to?

Or a moment that changed you?

Think of it like a snapshot in time.

And if you would like to record something for us, we have a few tips:

Record a short voice memo on your phone and email it in.

If you have a photo to go with your story, please send it!

Don't worry about getting it perfect. We'll edit your recording for length, clarity and any bloopers.

And our last tip: Get creative with the sound you send. Take us to that special neighborhood spot, or play that song that got you out of bed for a while, or the sound that captures something different in your life now. You can visit kuow.org/postcard to share your moment.
