Welcome to the first Week In Review for 2021.
As we crossed the New Year, some of our human drama and tragedies got carried over as well. Why wouldn’t them? There is no firewall to stop the phenomenons from the “lost year,” a term some folks liked to characterize the year 2020.
In fact, looking at the trends the phenomenons will only intensify in the coming weeks and months. Take the Coronavirus for example. It is all but guaranteed to surge post-New Year based on the Thanksgiving and Christmas data.
Not to mention, impacts from the Brexit and Mr. Trump’s relentless attempts to overturn the US Presidential election outcome are still unfolding. Best to say your Happy New Year and move on. Because things will likely be as difficult if not more this year.
Personally, I am not surprised by these late developments. To me the year label is only social and independent to our human journey. And as we progress on the long arc of human evolution, we must continue to ask the larger questions.
Stay safe & have a nice week.
