2016 has been such a tumultuous year. Political upheavals, social turmoil, economic disasters. Everyday we have been hit by waves of bad news and gales of gory images. And yet, we survived. And by surviving, we are rewarded by the hidden beauty in the world: strangers helping strangers, the youth being agents of change, people being aware of the environment. Congrats for weathering the storm that was 2016, and here’s to a sunnier (and saltier and sandier) 2017!
