The year 2020 is challenging and just plain awful for many people. We see how humans act during a crisis, how they seem to throw away humanity when put under pressure. We see the change of what almost seemed like a regime; we witness the devastating power of pandemic and its impact on our everyday lives.
Yet, light shines the brightest in the dark. Even amongst so many crappy things, there are still kind and beautiful people out there. Maybe you are one of those people who’ve allowed light to shine, hope to stay even under the darkest times. You probably didn’t realize it – it could be the smile you gave to a stranger or uplifting comments you left on someone’s rant on social media.
