    Thank you so much for these emails. I’m sure you put a lot of time into putting these together & I really appreciate the roundups of ideas to watch, see and listen to and have particularly appreciated the timely ideas the past couple of weeks.

    I’ve been enjoying your weekly emails for the past six years, but I have to say that I’ve been a much more avid reader, engaging with suggestions in your “Five Things for Today” posts over the past few months. I greatly appreciate the shares about the recent protests against police brutality and systemic racism, which deeply impacts our children — especially those of us with black and brown children. Thank you.

      You’re welcome, Shawn. And thank you so much for your note! I’m happy that I can use this platform to share content that is relevant, important, and resonates with KFDC readers. I should note, though, that the real credit goes to the people who create it all; I’m just helping put it out there.
