Chase is home from day 1 of camp, she had a blast. For those curious about how they’re handling the virus risk…
1 – They wear masks at checking-in, during transit to their destination, at check out, and inside.
2 – All kids’ temps are taken at check-in and check-out.
3 – They ask question of the parents and kids as to their activities between each day.
4 – They try to have the kids stay 6 feet apart – Chase said if any one is seen breaking the social distancing rule they yell “NOODLE” and then they all separate and giggle.
5 – They stay in their individual cars at check-in until everyone has arrived.
6 – Groups are limited to just 5 kids and one adult.
7 – No touching or sharing food.
Sharing my thoughts/feelings…
I think what we’re seeing is an assortment of people, all from various backgrounds, who feel under privileged, marginalized, angry, lost, hopeless, and/or tired, hijacking the BLM protests to send their own message to a failing system.
This makes me sad for the BLM protestors as it’s moving the light off of their cause, and it makes me feel sad for all the other people who have clearly hit rock bottom, and sad for the small business owners who were already struggling during this pandemic and have lost even more now.
The US could have, and can do, more to prevent this type of thing across the board. We’re seeing the a fire of anger fueled by race, class, and wealth inequality that’s been building for centuries/decades.
