There is much that was out of our control in 2020. It was a turbulent year, full of uncertainty, frustrationand chaos. But I’ve often found that in hindsight it was often in the times of pain, or suffering, that I learned the most and from which I had the most to show for my effort. I think that will be true of 2020.

By the end of 2020, both Dictionary.com and Merriam-Webster had declared pandemic the word of the year for 2020. Pandemic is defined as “an outbreak of a disease that occurs over a wide geographic area (such as multiple countries or continents) and typically affects a significant proportion of the population,” according to Merriam-Webster.
