Social media is well-populated these days with comparisons between the length of corona virus related restrictions we’re living under and the 40 days of the Lenten season. Some even include biblical references to other times in history that were difficult and lasted 40 days or 40 years. Whether or not you think the length of time between the start of Corona Virus Pandemic related restrictions and the date on which some will start to ease May 1st, and the length of Lent are anything more than coincidental it’s pretty clear that the time we’re living through this spring will be remember most for what we’re doing without. Mondays’ order from Ohio Governor Mike Dewine mandating that schools remain closed for the rest of the current school year resulted in little surprise but I’m sure a lot of disappointment among teachers and students who will miss out on what is pretty generally a fun time of the year, and parents and grand-parents who will have to continue to serve as fill-in educators through the end of May. Right now we’re all just hoping that schools will reopen when the new school year starts in August. Signs of protest against Covid 19 restrictions are growing around the country but I’m quite frankly surprised at the lack of complaining I’ve heard from the people I encounter. Maybe we’re all just too busy coping to have time to gripe. That’s the way I see it.
