From the COVID-19 pandemic to globalprotests against police brutality and racial injustice, the year has been marked by crises that have tested humanity's resilience and adaptability.

As we approach the end of the year, we can look back and reflect on the challenges we have faced, as well as the lessons we have learned. The pandemic has forced us to rethink our priorities and adapt to new ways of working and living. The protests for racial justice have shone a light on the deep-seated inequalities that exist in our societies and sparked a much-needed conversation about how we can build a more just and equitable world.
But the year has also highlighted the deep divisions and inequalities that exist in our world. The pandemic has disproportionately affected vulnerable populations, while some governments have responded with a lack of empathy and leadership. The protests for racial justice have exposed the systemic racism and oppression that still exists in many parts of the world, while some have chosen to respond with violence and repression.
As we look to the future, we must ask ourselves what kind of world we want to build. Will we continue to perpetuate the divisions and inequalities that have plagued us for centuries, or will we use this moment to create a more just, equitable, and sustainable world? The choice is ours.
In the end, whether we remember 2020 as a year to forget or a year to remember will depend on how we respond to the challenges we have faced. If we choose to come together in solidarity and build a better world, then 2020 may well be remembered as a turning point in history. But if we allow fear, division, and inequality to continue to dominate our lives, then 2020 will be a year we would rather forget.
