What a year! We all agree it was an usual one filled with many challenges and sad events. If I put the events in chronological order, the first one that shocked us was the pandemic. Gradually we learned about COVID-19. But it was confirmed in March and we had to face the reality.
Later, we watched a live murder in front of our eyes. We watched how George Lloyd was killed on May 25. I watched the funeral through live streaming on June 4. As I was listening to Reverend Al Sharpton I was crying hard. It was touching. So on June 7, I attended the demonstration for Black Lives Matter in Glendale, even though I was very careful not to catch or transmit the virus. I wore my mask and did not touch, hug, or shake hands with anybody. But there were many people close to each other. It was inspiring to see many Armenians and Latinos united. Fighting for justice was important. Many Glendale School District's administrators and school board members participated. We saw many riots and rallies all over the world.
