An Open Letter To 2016

Dear 2016,

You have been one of the best and worst years of my life, but by all accounts, it seems as though you were for most of the population. I have experienced both great happiness and great sorrow in the last 12 months and I shall forget neither any time soon.

I look around the world and think back on all of the events you have brought. Acts of terror, shocking decisions and so much death. We have lost a great many people this year, both famous and dear loved ones. 

So as 2017 dawns, I’ll keep my words brief and to the point: I’m not sad to see you go nor am I happy about the way you ended. I do not believe I have ever seen a year where nearly the entire population on earth have such strong mixed feelings on the 12 months as a whole. 

Goodbye 2016 and please, for all of our sakes, do not pass your misery onto the year to come.
