I want to wish a Happy Mother’s Day today to all the moms reading this, and also to everyone who’s done any “mothering” – especially over the past year.

The need for caretakers has been astronomical during this extremely challenging year, and many people have taken on roles and responsibilities they never imagined themselves in. People I already considered to be unsung heroes – teachers and healthcare workers being high on the list – found their jobs becoming even more demanding. Many of them rose from heroes to the level of saints and martyrs – some of them literally, as their profession put them on the front lines in the battle against COVID.

So to everyone who has raised, cared for, nurtured, comforted, helped, healed, fed, taught, or loved a child – a child of any age – THANK YOU!

And Happy Mother’s Day!
