Hindsight is 20/20. Never has this saying felt more relevant, as we all reflect on a very difficult year. On 31 December 2019, with ignorant bliss, we welcomed the clean slate, not only of a new year, but of a new decade, full of hope, plans and resolutions. We quickly realised fate had other plans.
Cue the month of March, when our lives were abruptly put on hold. Forbidden, by law, from leaving our homes and seeing our loved ones (and in some cases, from even buying alcohol and cigarettes). It feels like yesterday and a lifetime ago. No matter who we are, where we live, what we believe in … we all, as a united global community, had to stop and face the unexpected challenges of 2020 head-on.
