Hi, my dear friends,
This has been a very unusual month of chaos and stress, mostly brought on by uncontrollable circumstances. Like many of you, we’ve had to deal with unreal challenges facing our lives as well as loved ones. From doctor bills to canceling trips and financial stress. It’s a challenge to keep heads above water and our children can sense this.

Anyone who is a parent or working with children ought to take a peek and check it out
Here’s one last timely article from an infectious disease specialist I found pretty profound.

Pretty eye-opening.
