I had a post planned concerning the difference in the media’s treatment of Hillary Clinton’s pneumonia four years ago and Donald Trump’s obvious health issues.
But then I got on the phone with my G/Son, who starts high school tomorrow. Young men his age have been heading off to be educated for centuries and centuries. See, e.g., Oxford. But for his generation, it will be unlike any prior generation. I’m sure remote learning will be a “thing” for generations to come, but his is the first to really embark on it as a group.
Spare a good thought, a candle, a stick of incense for this “generational cohort.” COVID is changing their experience of growing up in ways that I can’t even imagine.
