Midwestern Life

Description (Dublin Core)

We are a family of four living on a hobby farm in SE Minnesota's Driftless Area. Two kids are home from University. One will miss her graduation event and the other is in Med School doing on-line classes 12 hrs a day. The country internet is slow and nerves are fragile because of that. We've been out grocery shopping numerous times, but haven't seen any friends. It's very isolating. We've let neighbors and friends know we are available to help shop or cook and are cooking food for delivery to a homeless shelter. We have no close family and have heard from almost no one. People here seem to have closed in with their families and churches and excluded much of the outside world. Watching the news, we fear for our country. There seems to be no plan for the future, only empty political hype.
