We understand that this year was difficult for so many people. Clearly, the COVID-19 pandemic has changed our world forever, with over one million deaths worldwide, over 308,000 deaths in the United States alone and 17 million cases nationally as of Hi’s Eye deadline. Along with these startling figures, millions of people have lost their jobs, livelihoods, family members and friends at the expense of a virus that just a year ago seemed insignificant. However, along with these tragedies, we have chosen to also acknowledge the positive aspects of this year in order to remind everyone that there is still some good in our rapidly-changing world. Check out the slideshow below to see all of the highlights.
