Year of the metal rat

I had read that 2020, year of the metal rat, was going to be a very unstable year. I never could’ve imagined this scenario, still unfolding; certainly one for the history books. 

Metal Rat years are, as a whole, years of great upheaval, followed by new successful beginnings; rising from the ashes.

There is a quote attributed to Mark Twain, but likely not his. It goes something like this:
“I have been through some horrible things in my life, some of which actually happened”

There is truth to all of it this year. It’s important during times like these to try to remain balanced, rational, and simultaneously cautious. If the irrationality wins, we all lose. Let’s collectively get it together and exercise reason and we can see this through.
