2020 has been a terrible year for almost every human being on the planet. It has been a year of sickness and isolation, anger and fear, and bravery and cowardice. Whole corners of the planet have been burned to ash by furious wildfires, and washed away by raging storms.
It’s time we were done with 2020.
Next year, let’s try starting with something new. A fresh beginning to a new era. Let’s rebuild. Let’s try new ideas. Let’s end the bad-faith posturing of the power mad and the greedy, and start building a society that we actually would like to live in.
It’s a lot to ask, I realize that. But the alternative is a 2020 that never ends. We deserve better.
