    • I would never have expected anti-Semitism to be such a prevailing issue in the modern day. But I suppose that comes from the perspective of an individual who was educated about the holocaust from a fairly young age, as a core part of historical curriculum. It is interesting to see how effective these education initiatives are, and I hope they can be implemented on a wider scale in the near future.

    • I thought this was really interesting! I think we have all noticed how COVID-19 has affected people working, and it is interesting to see the way my parents are feeling about working from home is similar to many others.

    • Lilly,
      I thought the way you addressed the reality of true situation we’re in as a country in the midst of a pandemic was clear and straightforward, and also just a true statement that a lot of people probably don’t want to hear. I thought it was very interesting that you explained the importance of adaptability and acceptance, versus simply waiting around for things to go back to the way they were. I agree that whether than waiting around for something that may not happen for a long time, or may not happen at all, it’s better to work with what we have to continue with our lives.
