What a year 2020 has been for the world, the country, for families, and individuals. So many people have endured the horrors of war, natural disasters, hunger, suppression of freedoms, and illness. While it may be a year to forget, it is also a year to remember. We have been taught some important lessons: the whole world is connected; our planet is at risk; democracy is fragile; life is precious; racism is still with us; there are people of courage and commitment who will step up; and we need more love and caring for everyone. Let us hope that in 2021 we all can act on these lessons and create a preserved planet and a more peaceful, safer, fairer, freer, and better world for all of humanity.
