Has this been the worst year on record? I know I may be exaggerating, but I can’t remember a year with this much terrible going on from every angle. The year opens with Kobe Bryant dying in a helicopter crash, then a pandemic killing thousands and now riots happening everywhere. We all need to hide under a rock and pray.

COVID-19 Musings

A few things are on my mind. First, I know that there is apprehension about the District opening up, but this really is a lose-lose situation. Things at some point have to go back to normal, although it’s a big risk. Second, I know the kids are sad they couldn’t graduate in person, but I think this is the most attention a graduating class has ever got. I mean, Obama gave all of them a speech twice!
