One Day at a Time

One Day at a Time was a TV Series in the 1970s starring Bonnie Franklin, Pat Harrington. Mackenzie Phillips, and Valerie Bertinelli.  It was the first time I heard that cliche which is very meaning, especially with the events surrounding the spread of the coronavirus.  Today it was announced that the New York City School System will continue with distance education until the end of the academic year.  I am certainly familiar with the use of distance education in universities but am not knowledgeable of its effectiveness at the K-12 level.  Hopefully, all students are receiving a good education.

There is some cautious optimism as the number of admissions to hospitals and to ICUs have declined in recent days.  However, death counts each day are still high.  I am sure that everyone wants to return to work and have cultural activities back, but we must proceed with caution.  If we return to "normalcy" too soon, there may be a recurrence of the infections.

Let's take things one day at a time and hope for the best.
