Ruining the Ending

Ruining the Ending

Darth Vader is Luke Skywalker’s father.

Bruce Willis is dead pretty much the whole time.

Dil is a trans-woman.

If you haven’t seen any of the movies I’m referencing, then I probably ruined your day. But seriously, if you haven’t seen Star Wars, The Sixth Sense, or The Crying Game yet – that’s on you. That’s totally on you.

If you think you know what’s going to happen in the next six months – good luck with that. There are only two constants right now: Everything is going to change, and everything is going to continue to come at you at the speed of light.

What we can control and what we do know is that we are going to survive this. Schools will re-open. Teachers will feel safe to teach again. Gyms and Pools will open again without the need to make reservations. Restaurants will again return to normal, and babysitters and caretakers will be able to support parents that desperately need time away.

We can ruin this ending because it’s a happy ending. We all just need to see the light at the end of the tunnel. It’s there. It may fly by you. It may seem so distant that you have to squint to see it, but it’s there. We’ll get there. And we’ll get there together.
