Football has finally returned — the Big Ten announced they will return this month. Even if you’re not a football fan, is this a sign of a return to normal American life?

I don’t bring this up to make this blog about football, but rather to show there’s some semblance of getting back to “normal.” I use quotes around that as I understand the normal we once knew likely will likely not be the normal of the future. It will be a new normal, and that’s OK. It will just take some adjustment.

Who would’ve thought parents would have to make such difficult choices about simply sending their children to school? Do you send your children or keep them home for online learning? Will they learn OK if the online route is chosen?
