COVID-19. Just that term is enough to get you questioning how 2020 has been to you, personally, so far. I have seen an abundance of posts on Facebook and Twitter from people badly wishing for a re-do. They jokingly ask where the reset button is for 2020, since nothing good has panned out a quarter into the new year.
Where I live, a volcanic eruption occurred about two weeks into January. That eruption caused tremendous damage, there were lives lost, homes devastated, and places almost erased from the map. The ensuing ash fall was deemed of epic proportions with people living in cities miles away from the actual area feeling the effects.
Oh, and five days before January ended, I literally woke up to one of the most shockingly devastating news ever – Kobe Bryant’s apparent death due to a helicopter crash along with his 12-year-old daughter Gianna. It was heartbreaking. I am just a fan, but I couldn’t help the tears falling from my eyes. My heart broke for those left behind and for those who perished in that fateful crash.
