New Year’s Eve Bird Droppings: Goodbye and good riddance, 2021

Good morning, Camden Chatters.

Tonight, we say goodbye to 2021 and flip the calendar to 2022. We can only hope that Earth’s next revolution around the sun will turn out better than this travesty of a year.

Of course, we had the same hope last year, and that didn’t exactly turn out to be the case. Most of us thought 2021 was almost certain to be an improvement over 2020, when the COVID-19 pandemic arrived and ruined (or at least greatly disrupted) so many people’s lives. And yet here we are at the end of ‘21 and coronavirus is spreading more rapidly than ever, overwhelming health care systems and continuing to throw society into chaos.
