Before schools close…

Squeezed in a school and library visit yesterday before more closings. I introduced the speech by explaining that when people and nations experience stress, they often find a scapegoat — that was the case in the 1930s in Germany and now. When the president referred to the coronavirus as a “foreign virus,” his comment smacked of xenophobia.

Thanks to Library Director Lynn Delvallee at Washington Junior High School in Oglesby, IL for organizing and Interim Public Library Director Jill Shevokas for welcoming me on the Heartland Bank marquee!
