After the unique ride that was 2020, we are wondering what 2021 will have in store.
Will things return to “normal”? As the many twists and turns of the past year have demonstrated, our complex, interconnected world is far from static. With a positive mindset we need to plan for the future as with education only we will be able to move ahead towards bright sunlight.
Let’s pray to the almighty Lord that we combat with the situation soon and bring the life to new normal.
‘You can’t go back and change the beginning but we can start where we are and change the ending.”
