Grit, when do we need it? NOW!!! Where do we get it? Family and school!
It's not so much who you voted for, it's if you voted. We live in this country so that we
have freedoms like the privilege of voting. Show your children you care so they will care.

John Lewis said, "When you see something that is not right, not just, not fair, you have a moral obligation to say something. Our children and their children will. ask us, 'What did you do? What did you say?' For some this vote may be hard. But we have a mission and a mandate to be on the right side of history."
Many people are getting highly agitated over the election, COVID-19, social equity, economic upheaval and just managing life. We need to find ways to be successful managing these calamities , each one would have been a challenge, but all at once is a tsunami!
How do we cope with all of this at once? You need grit, you need problem solving skills!
We need to give our children the skills they need to be successful: grit, resilience and the willingness to try, even if that means failure. Build, if it collapses, build it again. Play an instrument, if you hit a discordant note, try again. Write, if you can't find the words, keep at it.
