I can think of three things right off: 1) Teachers are really really really important. 2) Distance learning has so many problems, it should be regarded as emergency use only for most students. It's not equal to classroom learning since it seems to be only working for well-supported students. As teachers, we can't allow ourselves to be defeated by the obvious inadequacies of distance learning. A dear friend, who's a kindergarten teacher in a low income area, is thinking of quitting because she's distraught over the lack of connections with her students. We can't allow the loss of talented, committed educators. 3) We must do something about the effects of the economic gaps in resources. Internet access is not a luxury, but a necessity that should be public and free like highways, fire and police. What else?
