About two decades ago during the time of Y2K and the Bush-Gore recount, I distinctly recall many businesses and organizations setting out with a Vision 2020. We were full of hope and anticipation for what 2020 might look like. This year certainly was not what anyone had in view or could have imagined just a year ago let alone two decades. This has been a year of uncertainty and change.
Our world has been rocked by a global pandemic that has changed our daily lives in so many ways. We watched as the world came to a grinding halt this spring. Our children stayed home to learn; our parents and grandparents in nursing homes were both a window and a world away; our friends, neighbors and sometimes even ourselves found that our livelihoods could be whisked away like the seeds of a dandelion blown by a child.
