As I was tucking my daughter into bed last night, I mention that tomorrow (today) was the last day of 2020, and what a relief it was to be entering a new year. She thought for a moment, and then asked, "Daddy, why is new year such a big deal? I mean, what if they new year is just as bad as last year?"
It could be just as bad as the last one . . . so why even hope for better?
