Portrait of Social Isolation

Eve's fifth-grade teacher arranged a zoom chat for her class today. Look how happy she was.
I listened to 20 fifth graders excitedly share what their lives have been like for the last few days, Showing off their pets and younger siblings, and chattering, chattering, chattering.

Her teacher patiently listened as they shouted over each other and discussed possible school ideas.

And it made me very, very sad.

I can't articulate it.

This is going to be long.

And hard.

And long.

Did I mention sad?
