2016 – Best Of A Year, Worst Of A Year

It was the best of a year, it was the worst of a year. And for a few more days it still is. Until 2016 passes the baton to 2017, that is.

2016 didn’t exactly unfold as you and I hoped. In fact, it started somewhat on the wrong foot.

People who marked our history with blazing trails, who left so much for the generations to come and who would never be forgotten. May them all rest in peace!

They all left in the year of #Brexit, the Nice and Berlin terrors, the election of Trump, the bloodshed of Aleppo and literally thousands of many other disastrous glitches in the matrix we call Our World. We never got a rest, actually. Every day something was happening.
