While I understand reservations about the COVID-19 virus in schools, I think most children should go to school. Virtual options should be for children with health conditions and who are at more risk of severe illness. In my opinion, children need in-person learning and socialization.

Sickle Cell Awareness

I didn’t know that September is Sickle Cell Awareness Month and was glad to find that out from your paper. I have several family members who have suffered and continue to suffer with the disease. It’s truly hard to watch people you love in pain. Let’s continue to make our community aware and combat this together.
