When the schools initially closed, the staff had given the students the impression that they would be back in two weeks. Our governor then sent out the word that schools would not reopen until April 28. I would hope not. I would not be willing to return as an aide. But just a few hours ago it was announced that the governor stated that all schools will be closed for the remaining of the academic year. Now there’s a shocker.
Governor Brown did make the statement to have all beaches and national parks and playgrounds closed. Anyone caught at said beaches, parks or playgrounds (thus far walking path is still available in city parks – but I expect that will change too) before the nation took a stand on closing the parks – probably a week before.
Corey posted several pictures he had taken of the Las Vegas strip. There were cars in a lot of the pictures, but no people except one where there was a security guard. Emptiness where it is normally crowded.
I would never have imagined living through something like this. And yet amidst this absolute strange chaos I feel so blessed. There are still so many things to be grateful for.
