Happy New Year, 2021

Let us put the disaster that was 2020 behind us, while keeping its lessons in our hearts. And let’s surprise ourselves with how gentle and kind and compassionate we can be as a people and as a nation. And if we don’t heal this planet and stop our destruction, we will face more and more of these crazy pandemics.

And finally, a beautiful quote from President Obama: “After a year that has tested us in unimaginable ways, we’ve seen how people from all walks of life have stepped up to create change to make things better. Here’s to ringing in 2021 with optimism for what’s to come and a belief that our best days are still ahead. Happy New Year!”
