My daughter is an only child and has a great imagination. The other day she told me a story about “a virtual job interview and a virtual date during the pandemic” that she had created during her freetime for fun...I was struck by the fact that the shelter in place regulations have even impacted our children's  imaginative playtime. Another night, she asked if in the future, students in Social Studies class might have to answer a question like “Put these things in chronological order: 1) The Chicago Fire, 2) the World’s Colombian Exposition and…Do you think the CoronaVirus will be on that list? Mom” “Yes, sweetheart,” I replied. “The Pandemic will be taught as a significant event to children in the future.” Finally I found a COVID-19-themed song she made up and recorded on our iPad.... (see attached video below) These moments with my daughter inspire me to say to my daughter and all the other kids in town: “Hang in there tiny heroes! You will play with your friends again soon.”
