At least in some places (like where I live in Nebraska), it can be easy to forget that we are still trying to escape a pandemic.

We are all anxious and ready to move on and move forward. I know I am.

But in our fervor to get back in action, we need to remember that everyone has been through some pretty heavy stuff over the past year (some far more than others). And we might not be able to leave that behind so quickly.

This was brought into focus for me this week as I listened to a podcast about “Shot Girl Summer.”

And it made me wonder, “Are we okay?”
