Why You Should Remain Thankful Even During the Pandemic
With a massive pandemic, a stressful election, a socially divided country and even killer bees, it can be very hard to find things to be grateful for this year. With that being said, there have been many things to be grateful for in 2020.
This holiday season, hold onto some of these things during your darkest moments to help remind you of how much worse things could be.
Biden Won the Election
Despite the tens of millions of people who voted from Donald Trump and the president’s groundless attempts to prove that the election was fraudulent, the fact remains that Joe Biden won the election and he will be sworn in this January.
Despite where your political views may land, the truth is that the only way to get the U.S. back to globalizing is with a Biden presidency. Biden’s plans for the future of the U.S. economy are far more productive than Trump’s. Also, Biden’s plans for rebuilding after the pandemic are also much more realistic than Trump’s.
You Are Healthy
With millions of cases and about a quarter of a million of U.S. citizens dead, it’s hard to believe that anyone in the country doesn’t know someone who has gotten the virus or even died.
However, if you are reading this, that probably means that you are healthy and well, which is more than can be said for millions of others.
It’s true that you may have lost someone due to the coronavirus, but you are doing okay and that is significant.
The Unity Created By the Pandemic
Many things drove people apart this year. From the social divide created after the murder of George Floyd to one of the most stressful elections in U.S. history, it’s hard to believe that people are united at all.
However, the pandemic has created a great deal of unity out of necessity. Families and friends have been communicating via Zoom to keep up to date with what’s happening in everyone’s lives. Furthermore, the amount of support for essential workers and frontline workers has been astounding. People have sent care packages and extra masks to healthcare workers to assist them during these trying times.
A Vaccine is On the Way
Not one, but two different pharmaceutical companies have created highly effective vaccines to combat COVID-19. To make matters better, they are expected to be available to the public by early 2021.
Although that may seem like an eternity away, rest assured that there is currently a light at the end of the tunnel.
Unemployment is Way Down
At the height of the pandemic, the unemployment rate rivaled that of the Great Depression. However, as of now no state has an unemployment rate greater than 6%. If you are back on the job hunt, rest assured that jobs are returning and that you can land one.
