The pandemic brings to mind the special places called stoops and porches.
They provide us places to leave notes, gifts and food, and ways that help remind us of our humanity.
As we deal with this stressful time, it’s great to see how parents, sometimes with assistance from our first responders, help their children celebrate the all-important days of their birth. And while it can be hard to distinguish one day from another just now, remember this Sunday, May 10, is a special day. Happy Mother’s Day to all our wonderful mothers!
