It’s been roughly 260 days since the United States started it’s “15 days to stop the spread” quarantine actions.

What a slew of singular events during the 260 days we have since witnessed!

We’ve tragically seen roughly 270,000 Americans who have lost their lives from causes including and/or related to COVID-19; various levels of shutdowns and by extension national unemployment which rose precipitously then has struggled to regain footing; national protests for civil rights; devastating wildfires and hurricanes; and all this during one of the most unique presidential elections in American history – which continues to be unique even post-November 3. All the while, many of us have spent months inside without being able to travel, attend weddings, or even funerals for those we love.

It’s understandable that in turbulent times like these, we can often feel sadness, anxiety, frustration, and a host of other strong emotions.

But while these stories of heartache and disaster loom large, it helps to focus on some of the tremendous good that exists in the world as well. Feats of triumph for the human spirit. So this Blog Post for our Financial Services firm is, in this instance, dedicated to the strengths that allow humans (and a few animals!) to build not only great businesses but great lives as well.

So, for 2020, here are 17 pieces of undeniably good news that are worth sharing with the world:
