Our country continues to exhibit institutionalized racism, another plague which should be immediately addressed. We are in the sixth month of dealing with a Covid-19 pandemic. We are staying home and social distancing and not able to join together safely for anything. Father’s Day will be a long distance celebration for many.

Looking for ideas for Father’s Day 2020, many were the typical, but more acknowledged the difficult and different of times were are now living through. Many are unemployment and many are struggling.
