Last Day 2020 – Auld Lang Syne

US Covid-19 Status At A Glance (source: NPR)

On this very last day of an emotional year, many things are unsettled.  And yet people can’t wait to get the year over. It has been a year since the first Coronavirus case reported in Wuhan China.  A whole year.  And things are not looking good here in the US.

A gloomy picture as illustrated above by the National Public Radio shows just how bad the pandemic has hit us. “More than 19 million people in the U.S. have had confirmed coronavirus infections and more than 330,000 have died of COVID-19.”

And the pandemic is not going away with the year 2020 even with the vaccine roll-out earlier this month. What going away is UK’s leaving of the European Union (aka Brexit ) at midnight tonight Brussels’ time.  More fallout surely will follow from this “divorce.”

The US Senate is still in session and probably will through the New Year in addressing Mr. Trump veto of the 2021 National Defense bill.  And not surprising, Mr. Trump is cutting his vacation short and returning to Washington today to fight what he called a “stolen election.”

Nevertheless, shall we take a cup of kindness yet for auld lang syne?
