Some of our favorite Twitter posts are highlighted here - or search the strand on Twitter and you'll find beautiful messages, written from the heart, by authors - to let our young readers and the whole world know that COVID-19 needs to be taken seriously and we need to continue obtaining information from reliable sources like the WHO and CDC and support our health care personnel by doing what we can (such as social distancing) even though it may be hard. We are aware that some adults cannot stay home as they are essential workers and that for some young people it can be particularly hard to stay home - but we are proud of them all. Sometimes being a hero is doing something small. And it's always about doing the right thing, even when it's tough to do.
For 2021, we will be highlighting the Diverse Verse resource and initiative. This includes a website (www.diverseverse.com), padlet (https://padlet.com/venkatraman_padma/543z1xl2afh46x5l) and pinterest page (https://www.pinterest.com/venkatramanpadma/diverse-verse/) that we hope will continue to grow.
