Happy New Year!
Looking up for what’s next.
What to think… or what to …remember?
I’m glad to see 2021 go away.
What has been learned?
There are a few things about 2021 that are good. 2021 has not been all bad.
- I’ve continued to learned about live Internet broadcasting of events. Software & hardware components.
- I learned to check my love of country so that my love of God is greater.
- We welcomed a new grandchild into the world!
- We welcomed new nieces and nephews into the extended family!
- My wife and I survived having COVID in August. It was rough for both of us.
- My wife, daughter, son-in-law, four grandchildren (1 newborn) all had COVID, now we all have natural immunity1!
- COVID is not a death sentence 2 3.
There are many things about 2021 that are awful. Most of all, the mess of COVID.
- Fascism4 traded for the promise of safety5 6. False hope.
- COVID revealed the worst in people7 8, governments 5 6 9 10 11, and corporations 12 13.
