The year 2020 will go down as a challenging and sometimes heartbreaking year for many of us. The shock of COVID-19 along with the loss of life, liberty and ability to pursue happiness hit us all. We watched demonstrations, riots, crime surges, geopolitical unrest and uncertainty, ugly politics and rampant selfishness.

Some have been filled with fear, concern, anger and even hopelessness. Yet, we Americans are a hardy people who tend to quickly forget history. We have experienced crises many times and we keep bouncing back better than before.
