How was your weekend? Are you doing ok? I’d like to know. Sunday is my favorite day of the week: I am very thankful to be able to connect with my family via Zoom. It helped ease my frustration at feeling like I could not safely participate in one of the peaceful protests. But even though I stayed home, I still made some new friends. My wish for them all, and for you: Stay safe, and always, be kind.
