2020 was a test of our courage, our empathy, our resilience, our patience, and our resolve. The horrors of the year – hundreds of thousands of deaths from Covid-19, everyone’s life disrupted by a deep recession and the limits on normal activities, the painful reckoning with the depths of systemic racism made brutally clear by the death of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor, the debasement of our political system culminating in a mob attack on our Capitol – are distressing and raw. And it’s hard to know whether we’ve reached bottom, or if there’s worse to come.
