It is hardly consolation to be reminded that this is not the first low point in American history.

And if we listen to those lessons, perhaps a better future will be possible. With that in mind, TIME asked 21 historians to weigh in with their picks for ;worst moments; that hold a lesson mdash;and what they think those experiences can teach us.Here, they explain their choices:
First things first, don t be afraid of dressing how you actually want to. So, if it means going out of your comfort zone a little bit, because you feel like it, that s totally okay. When I was in college, I used to go street shopping a lot. But since we can t do that in a pandemic, I have been repurposing my old clothes. So basically, cut a long dress, crop an old sweater, or wear a T shirt in a new way that I have never worn before.

Geneva Today, the Secretary General has urged that global efforts to manage the COVID 19 crisis will depend upon public health responses and a comprehensive recovery that include all people. The United Nations Network on Migration welcomes the Secretary General s policy guidance on COVID 19 and People on the Move, which provides key lessons from the pandemic that can guide us in advancing safe and inclusive mobility. No one will be safe from the pandemic until everybody is safe. COVID 19 is presenting critical challenges for humans everywhere. Restrictions on human mobility are exposing many people on the move to significant risks, impacting their human rights and well being, impeding our collective response to the pandemic, and threatening our ability to ensure a recovery in which no one is left behind. But this current environment is also an opportunity for us to reimagine how migration can be governed in a more humane and effective way, during and after this crisis.
A questionnaire on our changing behaviour and attitudes to food during the Covid 19 pandemic has been launched by research institutions and other organisations including ECOLISE.There is much anecdotal evidence that food is becoming more central to many people s lives during the crisis.

Forced out of schoolMore than 10,000 schools in Sierra Leone, Guinea and Liberia were closed during the 2014 epidemic to break the chains of transmission, given that children and young people can be vectors of transmission, and contact rates are high in schools. Consequently, 50 lakh students in these countries were pulled out of classrooms. While schools in Sierra Leone were closed for nine months, those in Guinea and Liberia did not open for almost six months. By the time they reopened, students had lost roughly 1,848 hours of education, ranging from 33 weeks in Guinea to 39 weeks in Sierra Leone, according to the 2015 UNDP report on the socio economic impact of the epidemic.
NEW YORK, 13th May, 2020 (WAM) The UAE has emphasised that multilateralism and international cooperation remain essential to resolving global challenges at a meeting of the UN Security Council on the 75th anniversary of the end of the Second World War in Europe and lessons learned for preventing future atrocities. "While we commemorate the end of the Second World War on European soil, its consequences had a direct impact in the Middle East that is not often part of the European narrative. The balance of power and geographic divisions made at the end of the First and Second World Wars by the victors determined the boundaries and new fault lines of the Middle East in a way that still has far reaching ramifications today," said Ambassador Lana Zaki Nusseibeh, UAE''s Permanent Representative to the United Nations in New York.

Photo: Jerome Delay APIn late March, as cases of Covid 19 sped toward 1 million worldwide and deaths approached 50,000, the Democratic Republic of Congo quietly achieved a public health milestone: Forty days with no new cases of Ebola.Few noted that victory, but it holds important lessons for the United States as coronavirus skeptics and conspiracy theorists continue to hinder the nation s response to the pandemic. In Congo, wild rumors and misinformation about Ebola led to attacks on hospitals and health care workers. Beating back the outbreak there involved a pitched battle not just against the disease, but also against lies and widespread distrust of public health officials.
By September 2014, Liberia appeared on the verge of collapsing before the ravages of the Ebola virus a horrifying disease infamous for escalating from flu like symptoms to hemorrhaging that cause gruesome external and internal bleeding and vomiting, resulting in death in 50 to 90 percent of cases. President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf shut down public life in the nation, a measure that should now sound grimly familiar to a nation bracing itself to suppress COVID 19.As the situation deteriorated, the U.S. Army s Africa Command received a series of unprecedented orders. On September 12 it was asked to build a twenty five bed hospital in the Liberian capital of Monrovia to help treat Liberian doctors and healthcare workers 150 of whom would die fighting the outbreak. Then three days later the mission, dubbed Operation United Assistance, was expanded to incorporate over 3,000 troops who would build seventeen hospitals across Liberia and conduct mobile laboratory testing.

" #8216;Wrong Way Round ' is about a woman who never quite found what she was looking for. My Grandma was the black sheep of her family, and was always trying to find a place to fit in. As a result, she had a lot of adventure in her life. She dove headfirst into every situation without questioning the consequences, and often suffered for it. She lived in New York, Chicago, Mexico, Cyprus, England and Israel over the course of her ninety two years, was a committed environmental activist and student of language and culture. One of the biggest lessons she taught me was how to give ZERO F cks about what others think of you. I hope this song honors her memory and all of the misfits out there "
