Not everyone has family and/or friends to spend it with.
Some of you are grad students, postdocs, single-parents, supporting families and minimum wage, and/or necessary services folks who have to work over the holidays.
Some of you can't go home because money is tight.
Some of you are veterans serving overseas, or have family who are.
Some of you are struggling with mental health or chronic illness.
Some of you can't go home as your family doesn't accept your sexuality or gender.
Some of you can't go home because a travel ban won't let you back in.
And some of you don't have a home.
I wish all of you well for this holiday & the new year.
