Just reflecting on this article and also on 2021, I think that for those of you still raising families and pursuing careers, one of the best things you can do for your families long-term is to NOT promote the feelings of how bad things are/have been. Keep this kind of thing out of conversations and focus on taking a can-do approach to whatever is required. Train yourself and your families to meet the challenges with a positive outlook.
I remember when in the second/third grade a good friend caught polio, which was at that time one of the worst things for young people. Ronnie spent about a year on his back in the old 'iron lung' contraptions in a hospital (look online for some pictures of those horrible machines ). His parents kept him up with schoolwork, and he graduated with our class on time.
And we all got our polio shots as soon as they were available. There was no discussion about it, since it was also often a matter of life and death.
