Five Things for Today: January 21, 2021

Pillars of light — and hope — in DC this week


1. In case you didn’t catch it last night, Celebrating America, the primetime Inauguration TV special, can be viewed online — and it was fantastic!  Just like all of the events yesterday. 💙


2. It’s a great time for a presidential outing, and you can visit the former digs of first POTUS George Washington at Mount Vernon. The grounds, most of the museum, and first floor of the mansion are open daily 9am – 4pm, and extra safety measures are being taken for Covid. Admission is $28/adult, $15/ages 6-11, free for children 5 and under.


3. Good Trouble for Kids is a book subscription service to help families build racially conscious libraries.  The service distributes books on racial and social justice to children and young adults with a goal to support kids and families by furthering the conversation on race in America through story, literature, and illustration. Monthly subscriptions and book boxes with age-appropriate reads are available, and they come with a link to Xtra Good Trouble, creative supplemental materials pertaining to the story and illustrations, designed to guide and engage parents and children in conversations and practices on racial and social justice. 


4. Let’s watch and listen to this brilliance again. (PS: She has two books, one of them for kids.)


5. The Bernie memes are right up there with Michelle’s outfit and Lady Gaga’s, well, everything (really, how amazing was she?). Especially the local ones.
