At the end of 2019, most people had big dreams for the coming year. All over the internet we saw "#2020Vision"; people were claiming to have a clear vision for the year 2020 and it would be their year for more success and prosperity than they had ever seen in their lives. However, most of everyone's plans and hopes for the year came to a screeching halt within in the first three months due to a potentially life-threatening virus spreading rapidly across the planet forcing the majority of the Earth's population into quarantine. According to reports, not only has this virus claimed hundreds of thousands of lives all over the world to-date but it has quite possibly caused irreversible damage to the world's economy. Companies have been forced to shut down, unemployment rates are an all time high and people are struggling to find out how they're going to make ends meet. One can't help but wonder if anyone saw that coming with their #2020Vision?

At the end of 2019, most people was excited about heading into the new year. The hashtag "2020 Vision" was all over the place; people had big plans and big dreams about what 2020 held for them. Four months into the year COVID-19 is spreading across the world at a rampant pace, the government is telling everyone to stay in their homes, the death toll is rising, businesses are shutting down and the economy is falling into a recession. One can't help but wonder if anyone saw this coming with their 20/20 vision.
