Your story is heartbreaking, Jacqueline. We have one son who is a high school teacher. His school is still doing remote learning. He lives on one coast and we live on the other. I wrote a poem prompted by the thought that we might never see each other again. People are putting their heads in the sand. It’s horrible. Thank you for making a hard choice, but the right one.

I write whatever I want, like poetry The New Yorker wouldn’t dare print. Visit me at denisesheltonwrites.com.
