We’ve all lived through the first truly global pandemic since the Spanish Flu in 1918, which killed more than 50 million worldwide. Navigating the unprecedented coronavirus outbreak this year has been a learning curve of epic proportions.
Lives lost, disaster declarations, mask mandates, schools and businesses shuttered, and who can forget the great toilet paper shortage of 2020. And only now with vaccines rolling out and a glint of hope on the horizon, can we even begin to evaluate the devastation it has caused.
Where Do We Go From 2020?
It’s time to reflect on who and what are really important this year. 2020 has crystalized that for many of us. Here are a few of the things we’ve hopefully learned.
- We value our family, friends, pets and neighbors above all else. 2020 taught us that our homes, our livelihoods and our health can be taken from us in an instant, and they are all that truly matters.
- We’ve learned that every worker is truly “essential.” While we take our hats off and salute the medical workers and first responders who have gone so far above and beyond, risking their own lives to serve us. We believe there are no “non-essential” jobs.
As we all say goodbye to 2020, let's make a resolution to be more patient, thoughtful and kind.
Happy New Year,
Teena & Trina
