Any day, year or decade is good when you are blessed with God's Gracious Gift of being alive.

Well at least we have the Covid vaccine now which gives me hope that the 2020s will be a good decade.

That's the thing, IF it gets better. The COVID doesn't show any signs of going away despite the vaccine, and we could end up with other issues. The 2010's look better now (except for 2013-14).

You have to give the effect of the vaccine chance to become evident. Only a fraction of the population has had even one dose at the moment. Even so cases are falling. New treatments are also becoming available.

I believe we have turned the corner on this.

There always exists a possibility of a virus even worse then Covid coming on soon. You never know.

I'm honestly not sure how much it compares to the 2000s or even the 2010s as of now. I used to hate the 2010s a lot back then, but that's mostly because of stuff I had to deal with personally. This is probably on a whole new level given the restrictions.

Same. I think mask-wearing will be phased out in 2022.

What sort do you have?

I plan to keep my washable ones so I can use them when I have a cold or other illness. Or Covid or another respiratory disease becomes a problem again.

We have a box of them so I think it would be a good idea to save them for when something comes around.

What if 2020 isn’t cancelled?⁣
What if 2020 is the year we’ve been waiting for?⁣
A year so uncomfortable, so painful, so scary, so raw — that it finally forces us to grow.⁣
A year that screams so loud, finally awakening us from our ignorant slumber.⁣
A year we finally accept the need for change.⁣
Declare change. Work for change. Become the change. A year we finally band together, instead of⁣
pushing each other further apart.⁣

They really don't. Every time I hear music, watch TV from that period (especially the middle part), it makes me glad we're out of there.
