2020 – a year that came bearing gifts that we weren’t expecting.  

So much has occurred that propelled us into uncharted waters:  a pandemic; months of protesting that Black Lives do Matter; an economy hit with a 1-2 punch; schools on all levels scrambling to figure out new technology and provide viable solutions; trauma from deaths and fear that continues; and the frustrations of seeing people dismiss science and logic only scratch the surface of what we’ve been through. 

2020 pushed us outside of our comfort zones, and some of us have adjusted while others are still navigating these realities.  Regardless of where you are on the continuum, we are all in this new terrain together, and that is the primary constant of this year.  

For our chat on Thursday, November 12th at 9pm EST, we will be discussing what this year has meant for us, and our thoughts about 2021.  

Questions:

Q1:  If you could describe 2020 in one word, what would it be and why?  #MacroSW 

Q2:  This year was nothing that we imagined.  How has your life changed?  #MacroSW

Q3:  So much has transpired that may not have allowed us to breathe and soak in moments of joy.  Share with us wins, good moments, or even a bit of normalcy you were able to capture this year.  #MacroSW 

Q4:  2021 is around the corner – what are your hopes for the new year?  #MacroSW
