It took a whole year, will take some more than that, but we are finally seeing some semblance of normalcy. People are returning to work, taking mini vacations, catching up with friends, many activities have resumed with all the precautions in place, and so have some schools.

Cartoonists, around the world, have tried capturing the various emotions surrounding the back-to-school season in a post-covid world, and might we add the results are hilarious.
