About the Book
Isn’t it ironic that ‘2020' often refers to seeing things more clearly? Well, this year has certainly done that. 2020 has grabbed us by the shoulders and given the world a much needed shake. First, a global quarantine forced humankind to break from the normal routine of 'commute, consume, repeat'. Shocking at first, but in hindsight, it’s become clear we don’t need to live that way - something Mother Nature has been begging us to realize for decades. And then, the murder of George Floyd took yet another set of blinders off. Racism is not a topic we can place neatly into history books and close the cover on. Systemic racism has been methodically woven into our daily lives - even if we don’t want to believe it.
All of us need to take a moment, hold up a mirror, and take a really close look. Who are you? What do you believe? What can you do differently? 2020 wants to know.
