God bless special people of our schools

This corona virus has caused so much heartache for so many  -  churches, schools, restaurants, gyms, hair salons, local and national governments and especially dedicated teachers and other school workers like secretaries, janitors and nurses throughout the nation.
Some people believe these teachers and school workers are getting a "vacation." That is far from the truth.
They became teachers because they love their kids. The students in their classes are "their kids."
Not only do they miss them, they are trying to learn how to teach online, something they never in their wildest dreams thought they'd have to do.
They don't have the daily physical contact. Believe me, some of these kids need this positive physical contact! School, their classrooms, and most of all their teachers are the only "safe" environment they have!
Teachers are missing "their kids!" They are not in this profession to get rich, because we all know that is not happening. They do it because of their love for kids.
So, remember, they are not on "vacation." They are working very hard on remote learning.
They are missing "their kids" and they are struggling not seeing "their kids!" God bless these special people!
Pray that God will bless America and see us through this uncertain time!
