Name One Good Thing About 2020

The presidential election - not merely the result, as our democracy was spared the fate of the dinosaur and the dodo bird, but the fact that nearly 156 million of us voiced our opinion through our vote. In a year when the pandemic threatened to make casting a ballot a life and death decision, and the President and Republican leaders did their worst throughout this process, we stepped up in numbers beyond anyone's expectation. And when the President yelled most foul, his bootless cries were rejected from sea to shining sea, and even in one sentence by the highest court.

And so we battled a horrendous disease and a horrid President, and his henchmen, and demonstrated that the reports of Lady Liberty's demise were in fact both premature and greatly exaggerated.

Became a grandfather in 2020. Out of the ashes of a spectacularly disastrous year for almost everyone, comes an innocent and beautiful new life. The year was not a total loss

Yes, we have quite a bit to be thankful for! I'm still doing jigs on the last administration's coffin, just to make sure that the nails are all driven home.
