On top of that, Andrew’s kids were also home due to the pandemic, and they talk about the struggles of working and being a parent during these times. Andrew also reflects on cancelled summer plans, watching church services online, daycare, and house renovations during 2020. They hope that people stay united while also expressing concern regarding the political climate of the U.S., which was magnified by the effects of the pandemic.
