School districts, parents, kids... everyone is trying to figure out how to get back on track. Even with kids able to learn virtually during the pandemic, it wasn't the same. Kids are way behind where they should be compared to just a year ago. Of course, there's a good chance someone reading this will immediately blame the teachers. Others will immediately blame the parents. While there's a third group that will immediately blame the school district and the leadership. If you are in any of these groups, please, take a step back for a minute. Realize that the pandemic put us in a position we weren't prepared for. We can now do one of two things. We can either pass blame and argue about why we weren't prepared, or we can realize we're all in the same boat and work together to get back on track.

I know that's easier said than done, but that doesn't mean it's impossible.

Women have left marks on everything from entertainment and music to space exploration, athletics, and technology. Each passing year and new milestone makes it clear both how recent this history-making is in relation to the rest of the country, as well as how far we still need to go. The resulting timeline shows that women are constantly making history worthy of best-selling biographies and classroom textbooks; someone just needs to write about them.
