Valentine’s day is Sunday and it’s a day when love is celebrated. Yes I know… love is not celebrated just one day of one month in the year, but it is a day marked on the calendar set aside to be celebrated. A day when most people express their love for one another with flowers, dinner and gifts.
Valentine’s day is not just about couples and those in love but love shared in all of your relationships period.
Obviously being single carries the least amount of emotional risk and stress and prevents the potential traumatic experiences a marriage can allow (like cheating, divorce, death of spouse). While being single allows you to not have to answer to another person’s happiness (to a realistic extent) at all. You can have more time to yourself.
But being single can also feel lonely at times and many older singles can find it hard to have friends, as many will be married and have families of their own (per some older singles).
Married life can give more security if both parties can cooperate. Money, socialization and the support of another person can sometimes allow you to be the best version of yourself. A good marriage builds you up especially if both partners support each others goal.
Since the global pandemic hit almost a year ago, it has given birth to a lot of entrepreneurs, individuals who have taken their skill sets to another level or expounded on their services to meet the needs of people. We see mobile businesses rolling up everywhere, providing services with safety measures in place to service the needs of clients, customers and individuals creatively.
You have telehealth professionals and front line workers making it happen in order to keep the economy moving forward. A couple of months ago I had my vehicle detailed from the comfort of my driveway, in the same sense you have companies doing home deliveries and services like never before.
After rejecting Joe Biden’s election win, and the constant lies of a fraudulent election to his base, the President of these united snakes of America incited an insurrection, a riot on January 6, 2021. All in an attempt to block the certification of President elect Joe Biden’s victory. These protestors, no these domestic terrorist stormed the capitol armed with firearms, make shift weapons, tear gas and everything needed for a government takeover. These pro Trump supporters took over the state capital without pushback or resistance. In fact the officers can be seen opening the gates for them. Had this been black lives matter the outcome would’ve been deadly!!!
MAGA protestors forced their way into the capitol building by breaking windows and crushing doors to gain entry. These entries led to the offices of Congressional lawmakers such as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and James E. Clyburn. These domestic terrorist scrawled threatening notes throughout the chambers, with even one (pictured below) walking off with Pelosi’s lectern.
There is no simple way to sum up this year. Tumultuous, terrifying, wearisome. Resilient, heroic, hopeful. Kobe Bryant, George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmad Arbry, the coronavirus, social justice, wildfires and one of the most contentious elections in American history. Tune in as we look back at 2020, the most trying year of our time.
Yes, there were some signs: systemic racism and the death of too many Black men at the hands of white police officers was already a scourge. Wildfires in the West, hurricanes around the world, and an increasingly volatile climate were already a menace as the overheated Earth continued to run a fever. An unconventional President facing a restive public and a re-election campaign portended partisan rancor and possible electoral upheaval. And then there was the cluster of cases of a deadly flu-like disease in Wuhan, China that seemed—to Americans at least—to be somebody else’s problem.
