The situation is still surreal. I was at the heart clinic with Dad on March 6th when we heard that the first case in Kentucky was confirmed. On March 10th Berea College notified students and staff that campus would close on the following Friday… No graduation. No Mountain Folk Festival. No HHE Danes. Kentucky public schools cancelled classes and all activities as of March 13th, hoping to reopen March 30, but so far there is no talk of that being a reality. To keep ourselves sane, and to try to contribute to the peace and sanity of our wider community, we’ve started doing a daily Facebook Live broadcast, where we share a few songs, stories, art, or whatever.
