3. Give your student the benefit of the doubt.

Nobody I know is focusing that well. It's a self preservation instinct to shift awareness from the normal tasks at hand to the dangers around us and those welling up in our memories.

It's healing for the country to shift attention towards the forces destroying our democracy. Maybe ask your student if she feels strong enough to do a special project to address her concerns. But don't pressure her. Be kind and caring and patient.
