Can 2021 be more horrible than 2020?

We bid goodbye to a pandemic year and hope Moderna, Pfizer, etc., including “colorums,” are able to find some affordable medical solution poor nations/people can’t afford.

Can 2021 be more horrible than 2020? Imagine Lolo Me unable to see apos, aged 12 and 10, in Barangay Poblacion, Makati; we live separately in Palanan, just two or three barangays away. Good that the internet has made possible communicating, but no mano or hugs for Lolo unable to walk for months now. (Therapy goes on.)

And I have three apos, aged 10, 8, and 4, living with me in Palanan anyway, a mitigating circumstance.

Meantime, the world has gotten used to “pandemic.” Will there be anyone who will finally use “pestilence” as one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse?

Shall we have a better year?
