parents must be devastated over what to do--either choice seems bad. tragic that virtually every aspect of our lives since T***p illegitimate presidency has been altered for the worse. for some, a gradual deterioration in the quality of their lives; for others, abrupt.

I don't think any of the schools are properly prepared to handle it. There's no plexiglass, there's no hand sanitizer dispensers, ventilation systems in some schools are inadequate. Busses keeping 6ft apart would take all day to pick kids up.

I think the further disproportion is that many/ most people own zero guns, & those who own guns own lots & lots of guns.
