If on the night of 31st December 2019, as we tooted our horns and quaffed our drinks, and kissed strangers, if we had know what was to follow, all the lights would have been put out and everyone told to go home. I cannot say Happy New Year, this year, because so very many are struggling and saddened by the loss of loved ones, the loss of a job, the loss of housing. We will need to love and support our fellow citizens where it is needed, to think about others as much as ourselves and make this year a communal New Year. I believe that is what will happen. We celebrated the New Year without strangers, but I believe that the good Samaritan has been awakened in us and will make for a much better 2021.
