A gathering of moms centers around children, households, and errands. That’s, of course, after niceties and thoughts about the weather have been exchanged.

Can we collectively work towards a time where we can gather without the masks and the protective barriers?
Can we work on our own walls so that letting others in isn’t a battle?
