To say that it has been a year would be a painstakingly obvious understatement, given the current state of affairs globally. While I would love nothing more than to spend the next 300 words or so musing about just how drastically my life has been impacted by recent happenings, I won’t. Partly because a) I am so exhausted from having every waking thought, conversation, social media feed, e-mail, WhatsApp message, and VC meeting consumed by the Coronavirus but mostly because b) I am well aware that my perspective is hardly a unique one.
That is to say, as challenging as this pandemic has been, we’re all in this together. As devastating as it has been, I can’t help but marvel at the fact that this is the first time (in my relatively short lifetime) that I have ever seen the world so unequivocally unified.
