On March 11, 2020, who knew there would be no more school this year?
A young DC student stopped to talk to her mom after school. I bet their conversation was about dinner plans, homework, and the excitement of the day. Like so many conversations between schoolkids and their working parents.
What are their days like now? Does the mother spend her days worrying about her unsupervised daughter? Or is she unable to work, and anxious about paying bills and keeping food on the table? What hangs over her, everyone else, and everything during the #Coronoavirus pandemic are uncertainty, worry, and stress.
Government programs purporting to help those in need are mostly benefiting wealthy political donors and well-connected bankers. What happens to those who have become marginalized? Have they been forgotten? What will their #2ndStory be?
