Prayer Requests:
Surely there were some, but they were kept in the silence of the hearts of the PAX, which is perfectly fine.

COT:
It is worth saying again, the Pandemic sucks. It has been hard on all of us. Certainly every HIM in this group with a depenent family has stepped up efforts to compensate for 2.0 care and education and whatever other household tasks have become more burdensome. T-claps for that. And also, certainly there are highly HIM in this group who have taken the lion’s share of the extra responsibility at home, teaching, laundry, grocery, cooking, cleaning, maintenance of whatever. However, as a general rule, throughout the world in almost every culture, when societal norms break down, and when the safety net is too porous, the slack is taken up by women, particularly mothers. Many of us woke bro’s might think we are the shit becasue we do a helluva lot more household tasks than our fathers and all preceding generations. By that standard, we are kililng it. However, despite the progress of our generation, when people measure the unpaid labor within modern households, dudes are getting their asses kicked. Women make demonstrably greater contributions at home and career sacrifices, including cutting work hours, transitioning to work-from-home situations, leaving the workforce altogether. So just have that in mind when you get gone from whatever you are so lucky to still be doing away from home every day, if you are so lucky. Whatever you can do, and certainly whatever you are asked to do by someone who you may not realize is probably kicking your ass, just do it. And love the opportunity.
