School is hard.
If you’re like millions of other people, school was hard for you. So hard, in fact, thinking about it hurts. Whether you graduated last year, five years ago, or 50 years ago, it still hurts. That’s because kids can be cruel and you were probably on the receiving end of some of that cruelty. If you were treated the same way as an adult at work, the offenders would likely end up fired or jailed.
On top of that, kids have a gazillion other things to worry about. Following is a short list:
- skin color
- sexuality and sex
- alcohol and other drugs
- past, present, and future.
And when they’re not dealing with that, they’ve got their:
- and homework.
In spite of all that and so much more, most kids survive, some just barely, but they survive.
When kids go back to school this fall, survival will be harder than ever.

- Kids need friends.
- They need to belong to a group.
- They need to fit in.
- They need to feel safe and accepted.
- They need to be loved.
- They need to not be hated and they need not to hate themselves.
That’s always been true, but this year, it’s going to be harder than ever because HATE is the currency of the New Abnormal—hatred for others and hatred for self.
Hate is spawned in fear, and our owners—some of most powerful people in the world—are world class bullies and criminals who know how to create, manipulate and profit from our fear.
They’ve been doing it for centuries. And they’re doing it with a virus named SARS-CoV-2 and an array of symptoms called COVID-19. This is a matter of public record. Read more here.
