This is the best of all possible worlds.
Dear apocalyptic Year 2020, thank you. You made me realize how much I live in a fragile world.
A 260-year-old book brings me some comfort. During the Age of Enlightenment, a French philosopher and writer named Voltaire (1694–1778) wrote a masterpiece called “Candide.” Voltaire is still accurate for you, dear 2020.
