What’s the view outside your window like? With plenty of us still stuck at home during the quarantine, we spend a lot of time gazing outside our windows. If you’re one of those people or just want some simple and wholesome content, then the “View from my window” Facebook group will be right up your alley.

With over 2.1 million members, the “View from my window” page is a social media giant. The group invites people from all around the world to connect with others by posting a photo and a description, while people in the comments say a quick “hello” from wherever in the world they are.

The team receives hundreds of private messages and thousands of photos each and every day, so anyone anxious to have their pic featured will have to be patient. Scroll down and upvote your fave pics, dear Pandas! Share your thoughts about which ones you liked the most in the comments below and drop us a photo (or two!) of what the view from your own window looks like.

- Hello, this is 911. - Yes hello. I think quarantine has made me slightly crazy. I think I'm starting to have hallucinations. - What are you seeing? - A moose. Right outside my window. - Really? But you're in Canada, what else would you expect to see outside your window? - Tru dat. Thanks for your help. Bye-bye.

Amsterdam-based graphic designer Barbara Duriau launched the non-profit group on March 22 and it’s grown by leaps and bounds ever since.

The group is so popular that she relies on the help of 24 volunteers from all over the world to help her look through endless photos each and every day. After all, they have to make darn sure that each photo that they feature adheres to the group’s rules. The group plans to use the photos to publish a book, a calendar, and even make an exhibition in the future.

One of the unspoken rules is that it’s not a competition for the most beautiful landscape, animal, meal, or drink—the photos are supposed to be all about connecting to others through the shared experience of staying at home during the lockdown.

Duriau told Gizmodo that she prefers photos with stories over just plain aesthetics, so if you’re worried that your photo might not be good enough, think again.

The Facebook group has absolutely no tolerance whatsoever for bullying or hateful speech. In fact, the moderators had to disable comments on posts from Israel and Palestine. Duriau explained that this was done before hate speech becomes “impossible to manage.” However, Israellycool reports that the moderators have since reversed their decision after some people were upset about not being able to connect with others.

People Are Sharing What The View Is Like From Their Windows In This Facebook Group, And Here Are 138 Of The Top Submissions

In 2008 I attempted suicide.

I was hospitalized and I lost everything. When I got out I lost my job, my car, my home, everything. I was 24 with no education outside of a high school diploma, and I knew only how to sell things to people, which I hated.

I dreamt of traveling the world and seeing new places but I'd done nothing close to that. I lost focus of everything. I thought money was the key to happiness and I chased that. Feeling devoid of everything, I really thought that there was no reason to continue. I had my shot at life and I blew it. My family convinced me to go back to university, despite my appeals that I was too old.

I became a teacher, I volunteered as a coach for the Special Olympics, and I worked with at risk youth. I found that what made me happy was making kids who I could empathize with happy. Making them feel that they were cared for, that a stranger could invest in them, and believe in them. I haven't looked back since.

This situation has brought back old emotions, it's taken away from me so much of what I feel I need to be happy and I feel disconnected from the very humans I only want to better. I've had to adapt, and in that, I've come to see, slowly, that I have much to be grateful for.

Today I moved into my dream flat. I'm a kid from an extremely humble, and very young family in the desert of west Texas with a dream to travel the world and today I feel accomplished. My home today is a place I could only dream of as a child and couldn't fathom in 2008. I still struggle, every day in fact, but I know that I have a purpose, and through a laptop or in person, it doesn't matter, I know there are tiny humans who need to be believed in and I'm happy to do that! I loved every single student that I've had and I don't say that because it's what a teacher should say, I say it because I mean it. Today I feel OK, and that's always a step on the right direction for anyone.
