The Surreal Nature of a Modern Pandemic

While it still doesn't feel real as I healthily sit at home grinding through helping my children with elementary homework and grading high school English assignments, it doesn't take much to remind me that outside of our house the struggle to get our country through COVID-19 is very real. And with all the ways this can and probably will change our country (in some ways I hope for the better), it will fully hit home soon enough, because eventually the detached surreal will become very real for our family.
