“When will this pandemic end?” is a question I have heard with increasing frequency this year. In the final weeks of 2020, it seems the world is closer to getting an answer, as vaccines begin to slowly roll out across the world, offering hope for an end to a pandemic that’s devastated lives and livelihoods around the world.
The COVID-19 outbreak is one of many events that have made 2020 a year like no other. From the ensuing public health crisis—and its toll on diverse communities, mental health, and businesses, to name just a few—to the increasing urgency of climate change, to a watershed movement in racial and social justice, the year 2020 has brought more change than many could have imagined.
It can be hard to feel optimistic when there are still so many challenges ahead.
But in a year of unprecedented change, we also should feel hopeful, having seen time and time again the power of people to help each other through this crisis, sometimes against all odds.
