‘I’ll be back for you. I promise I’ll always show up.’ I looked back at her with tears in my eyes. Her life is a revolving door of state workers and strangers.’: Adoptee becomes volunteer foster care advocate, ‘No act of love is too little’

“Her vocabulary includes words that would break your heart. As she expressed the pain in her heart, I felt as if I was looking at my former self. ‘I know you, I see you, and I am going to fight for you.’ She looked at me with tears in her eyes, and told me she believed me. I’ll show her she can.”

‘Driving today, I saw waves of middle and high school athletes running in very close clusters. No masks. Lots of panting, big inhales and exhales.’: Teacher pens open letter amid school reopenings, ‘I’m risking everything I’ve worked my entire life for’

“Make no mistake. My wonderful students have not been social distancing. They haven’t been wearing masks. I’ve seen their social media posts all summer, living life as though we aren’t in the heat of a global pandemic. I’ve worked hard to protect myself and others for 6 months. Soon, I’ll be in a classroom with no windows and more teenagers than is safe.”
