The year 2020 will go down as a historic year that people will be talking about for years to come.  Through the year, the nation, along with the rest of the world, has been dealing with a health crisis called COVID-19.

Starting in March, states everywhere were going into lockdowns and quarantines, from schools closing to businesses shutting down.  We saw a flurry of activity resulting from stores being sold out of many household items.  We were ordered to wear facemasks and practice social distancing.  The end result was severe financial difficulties for people out of work.  Schools were forced into conducting online classes.  On the other side of the coin, many medical professionals were overworked caring for virus victims.

Due to scientists developing a vaccine at record speed, we are hopeful that the vaccines will help solve the health crisis.  This experience has taught us to put our health and safety first while becoming more adaptive.  More importantly, we should be more positive and grateful for what we have.
