So the year 2020 has come to an end. Somewhere, even 2021 has already come. I think most of us will be happy to step over this imaginary line. Climb the next step or jump onto a floating platform that will set us apart from everything that has happened in the past 12 months. It was too hard. Social, relationship, financial, recreation and health. And from the entire Zone-skins team, I want to say thank you to everyone who, despite this surrealism of reality, stayed with us.
Thanks to our moderators, you keep the community clean. Thanks to our regular users, you keep our small ecosystem alive. Thanks to new people, you bring new ideas and your own perspective. Thanks to our partners for your support, which allows us to develop further.
I want to wish everyone who reads these lines well-being, energy and, most importantly, endurance. After all, no matter how much we want to represent the virtual border separating the years, no matter how we imagine that under the chimes, the nightmare will end and everything will return to its place … this will not happen.
Changing the numbers on the calendar will not bring back those we have lost. She won’t erase months of isolation and fear. Industries will not drop restrictions to start working again. Because everything that happens is not a dream from which you can wake up. These are symptoms of a serious illness that we, as humanity as a whole, have ignored. Even today, millions continue to pretend that after 2020 everything will be “normalized” again.
I may be wrong, but the past normality will never return. But this does not mean that the end of the world has come and you will not have to count on good things. Humanity, with all its sins of vanity and self-destruction, is surprisingly tenacious. We’ll adapt.
Albeit too many resist, but I hope that this year will still be a lesson that the Earthlings did not learn the first time, a hundred years ago. What and who is really important in life. What to strive for and in what ways to achieve. Most importantly, I hope everyone realizes the help and role that the people we have given the power and responsibility for moving forward have played in the fight against modern plague.
Happy New Year!
