Goldie Hawn emphasized the effect the COVID-19 pandemic is having on America's children in an op-ed published Wednesday. Hawn likened the "existential dread" felt by children amid the coronavirus pandemic to the "dread" felt by children following the Cold War, the Challenger crash and 9/11 in an op-ed for USA Today. "Today, we are in the midst of a national trauma that could very well surpass 9/11 and approach the heightened terror of the Cold War years," Hawn wrote. "The COVID era has changed our children’s lives in far more real, tangible ways — social distancing, school closures, daily mask use." The "Overboard" actress went on to say the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) along with the U.S.

"The few federal and state dollars that get directed to youth ‘mental health’ invariably end up being earmarked for addiction and ‘crisis care,’ addressing only the most severe disorders.There are modest funds once a kid ends up in a hospital.
