Today we are at 111 Million cases globally, with 2.4 million deaths.
The United States passed a grim milestone today of 500,00 deaths due to COVID.
A lot has happened since my last post on 12/30. Trump lost the election and claimed multiple times it was rigged. He pushed this narrative to a boiling point on January 6th where his supporters stormed the US Capitol. People died.
Joe Biden has been sworn in as President.
We are currently in a push to vaccinate as many people as possible and cases are starting to drop. While good news, the concern is that people will assume the vaccines have wiped this out and relax a bit.
My son will return to in class school on April 1st and we are excited and nervous. He feels it would be disruptive to return in person on a modified schedule for the remaining two months of the school year. I am worried teachers are not a priority when it comes to immunizations and hope that all of the teachers in our district remain safe.
On a personal note I have been in a bit of a funk. February is always tough for me. It is the time of year that my grandmother passed away and no matter how prepared for this I am, it still hurts and puts me in a mood. I miss her terribly and always will.
I also have many positives happening and I need to focus on that. My career has taken off, I am in a great relationship and finally feel supported for the first time in my life, and I enjoy watching my son grow up.
I need to focus on these things.
