Today as I was dropping my kindergartene

Today as I was dropping my kindergartener off for school, another woman was dropping her child off in kindergarten for the first time. He was crying. Neither of her kids spoke English. She was in hijab. After she finished talking to the teacher, who kindly led her sobbing child away, I called out “welcome!” to her — then burst into tears myself.
