The Year that was 2021

It was not better or worse than 2020. Well, it was worse than 2020. In 2020 we saw a mismanaged lock-down. In 2021 we saw thousands of deaths due to a mismanaged pandemic. It was disconcerting. Even the discussions around it were disturbing. At this point, even 2022 doesn’t look that great. Hopefully, it won’t be as bad as 2021. 🤞.
