Our new norm is taking its toll but here is what we can do

In these uncertain times it is more important than ever to reach down deep and help others. Schools are starting and many kids do not have the resources to have a successful year. Teachers are scared, kids are scared, and even some parents are scared. Many people have to return to work and it is essential to have a place for kids to go but without supplies or clothes kids are struggling and adults feel overwhelmed. This pandemic has made a dent in everyone's confidence. With no set rules from place to place, sectional quarantines, openings and closings of schools from hybrid to remote and back again, travel bans and important social distancing rules it is hard to stay on top of everything that needs to be done. When the scientists and politicians differ on their opinions it is hard to get everyone on the same page. People are confused, frustrated, annoyed and really wanting something normal to return. We are not able to get part right just yet, but I have faith that we will. In the meantime your religious organization, food banks, schools, foster care services, and special needs organizations can use your help with school supplies, electronics that you can donate, food or if you can spare some, money. These will make a difference in someone’s life. You can only do what you can but every little bit helps to change our world ever so slightly from unbearable to tolerable in times like these. Help others rise and become the best they can be one little bit at a time and take the pressure off of someone who is struggling. It is the right thing to do and it will also make you feel good inside. Together we can help and together we will change the world.

Have a great and safe weekend and a good start to the school week- Ava
