Some seem to want things to fail so they can say they were right.  Thankfully there are some who want to work through these difficult times.  There will be ups and downs but that is just about anything you encounter in life.


@CrazyDaisy :  I guess so....it was so encouraging to see these test results allowing student life to proceed in a cautious and safe way.  Time will tell, won't it?

@Oznell :  Thank you for your kind words.  It has been hard to even participate because it wasn't the "right words" for some people.  I really thought this would bring a bright and encouraging spot in the environment we have lived with the last 4-5 months.  Oh well, what do I know...

My daughter is a sophomore at Bama and has been back on campus living in her sorority house since Aug 1st.  She says the school is taking every safety precaution possible and feels very safe ( although a little frustrated at times because it's so different than last years experience).  She had to have her test and a negative result recorded with the school before she was allowed to step foot on campus!  As a parent I'm hoping so much they get to stay for the semester 😷🤞

@tired mom04 :  I hope everything turns out well for her and all the students.  No, it won't be like last year but maybe things will improve enough to resume a normal second semester.  Hope springs eternal.

Re: University of Alabma COVID........

The number of deaths among those infected is not going down. It is significantly higher in several states and areas. Give it another week or two...We will all be reading about even more spikes in cases in Alabama. Alabama is my home state and it is one of the worst for complying with masks and social distancing.

@Goldengate8361 :  I live in Alabama and have not found your statistics.  Would you share?

This is a picture taken yesterday of a crowd of students from this university, and there are similar pics for Auburn University -- few masks, no distancing:

Yes, you are right.   These scenes are all around the U.S. each day and have been for months on end. 


@Hoovermom... On the up side, no tear gas... no guns... no property destruction... no looting... no brawls...
