Well, we made it.

Updated: Mar 10, 2021

I think we can all agree that 2020 was an absolute disaster. And though it would be easy to write a book’s worth of content regarding all the pain and suffering we’ve endured this year, I’d rather focus on some of the good I’ve seen.

First off, the human spirit is a beautiful, badass thing. Our lives were ripped from their roots by a global pandemic. We were asked to stay indoors, distance ourselves from loved ones, walk around with our faces covered, and trust in science. Not only have we been able to come together and accept these measures as a community, but we’ve stayed mostly positive and optimistic. We’ve been able to keep our eyes on the horizon and weather the storm despite our normal way of life being shredded to bits. It’s incredible.

I’ve seen complete strangers come together and place their lives on the line to help their fellow human. Having volunteered hours upon hours in various COVID care sites, I had the pleasure of working with volunteers from both @teamrubicon and CAL-MAT. Many left their homes and families, selflessly placing themselves face-to-face with this virus to heal people they’d never met. It’s been an inspiration to see, and an honor to be a part of.

I’ve watched my fellow healthcare workers rise to this challenge, relentlessly fighting with every ounce of strength they’ve got. We’ve worn N95’s till our faces are black and blue, and isolated ourselves from loved ones. Some of us have fallen ill battling this disease, and many have held a patient’s hand as they succumbed to it. It’s not over yet, but we’ve learned so much and with every dose of vaccine delivered that light at the end of the tunnel shines a bit brighter.

These are just a few things I’ve witnessed this last year. Now as we forge ahead into the next, I’ll humbly wear the scars of 2020 with honor and happily carry these memories with a heart full of hope.

Here’s to 2021. Please suck less.
