Two weeks after schools in Lexington closed, a number of elementary schools held spirited car parades so that teachers and students could at least wave at each other. There were pom-poms, balloons, home-made signs, and a lot of honking, too, which brought out to the sidewalks not only the kids but their elderly neighbors as well. Everyone was glad to be reassured that life goes on, even if so many things have changed, including our ability to greet each other with a hug.
