May 5 Update: "I Believe: The Risks and Rewards of Reality"

Some may find the video of this post naive or overly optimistic. I don't think so. I do not accept the notion that we have entered a "new reality" and that life as we knew it must conform to a "new normal" defined by others.  I choose to believe that words like recess, lunch-line, school play, student section, stadium, theme park, parade, and congregation will continue to have clear and functional meaning in the months and years to come. 

This video explains why I believe this and what CCS can expect as we close out this 2019-2020 school year.

Those living through the spring of 2020 will never forget it, but I believe we will someday have to tell the next generation what it was like.

Note from a year later:
At the 14-minute mark of the above video, I say that it is unlikely that we will be able to have graduation on the date on the calendar. I was wrong. With the help of many volunteers and donors, Calvary put together the first Commencement Ceremony in the state. It was all over the news.
