If one of the kids was sick and I needed to work from home to be with them, I used to think it was a disaster. It wasn’t. Now I know better.

There are some things that we’ve held onto that need a hard reset and when they come back, and they will, maybe we can design for something even better and more resilient, with more kindness and humanity.
