To a military operation.

(But without the protective gear, teachers and children are like sitting ducks against the insidious enemy — COVID-19. The educational system is not ready to have a biological war without government support. Appealing to heroic military metaphors is not going to save or protect citizens. Nurses, who are in a health profession, had protective gear, and limited exposure to others. How are teachers going to teach while covering their faces and at distance of 6 feet?

I love media and communication, as well as digital technology. I write and speak fluently in Spanish and English. I was born in New York, but was sent to Puerto Rico at an early age, where I lived until drafted by the U.S. army. Upon returning from an honorable discharge, I found Puerto Rico small and limited at the time. I moved to Boston where I pursued musical studies and later worked as a musician, teacher, and speech-pathologist in New York. I am currently still interested in world politics, social justice, and income inequality. Health and wellness are essential to survive and thrive. I am working on patience and skills necessary to keep learning.
