Dear 2021,

Dear 2021,

Please be kind. The world is so ready for you to be here. Please don’t be a repeat of 2020. We are hopeful you will bring healing. Millions of us have been sick. Some have died or knew someone who died. At first, we didn’t understand what was happening. The coronavirus was so new, we didn’t know what it was or how to protect ourselves. We got better at it once we figured out it was an airborne disease and transmitted that way. I’m begging you, 2021, please introduce the vaccine and get it distributed around the world. Then, we can get back to our normal lives.

Our doctors, nurses, essential workers need a break. They’re tired. Do you get that?

In 2021, once this virus thing is out of the way, I believe we’ll cherish what we shamelessly expected to be there for us always. You know, the little things. Like going to a movie, eating in a restaurant, taking a vacation, dropping our kids off at school.

Whatever you have in store for us, 2021, let’s hope it brings us together stronger, more united. It’s been tough, but I think we learned our lesson. We won’t take our health, our families, our communities for granted anymore. If 2020 taught us anything, it taught us that we need each other, more than ever. And toilet paper. We need a large supply of toilet paper.
