I think it's dangerous to live on campus right now. It is not for nothing that we sat in isolation for so long. Although I endured it so hard, I even had to go to a therapist Web Link to help me get through all my experiences. Now I feel much more confident and calmer

I often wonder what dogs think is going on when they see all the adults with muzzles on. I wonder too, more seriously, how children are understanding the virus. Isolation is the clear message. Fear may also be another. Education related topics seem to discuss various means of holding classes. It would be amazing if a method to attempt to communicate ideas of safety and comfort could be included. I have in mind, per example, a large (pink) bear with a mask on. The teacher says "Today pink bear is wearing a mask but IT (yes even bears are now gender neutral in Palo Alto) will not always need this mask". Then the class of 5 to 7 year olds (or whatever age is into question and answer time with large bears) can discuss how they feel. What they think is going on. Pod or no pod. Education has to focus less on "the place" and more on the urgent need to make a part of our population (children) feel totally okay!
