The kids are….stressed, anxious, lonely, struggling, learning, grateful, adapting…ALRIGHT: Children faced a dizzying array of disruptions during the pandemic. But kids are resilient, and BU experts see reasons for hope.” At right, the cover reads in smaller text “His MasterClass Took Off. What’s Next for Entrepreneurial Alum Aaron Rasmussen? Meet 16 Alums in the Biden Administration Matthew Levin Has Helped Build the New Red Sox Triple-A Team, the WooSox” and a caption pointing to the children that reads “Natick, Mass., parents Dustin and Deb Worthington say their three children weathered the pandemic better than they did. (See page 38.)”
