After two years of losing to Covid-19 we can all bounce back together and put aside our differences to once again unite as the losers we so obviously are. A true loser knows that life isn’t perfect 100% of the time, it is but a series of ebbs and flows. Sometimes everything goes as we desire and it all seems like a wonderful dream. Other times things don’t turn out as planned. But that is also ok because we will have learned great lessons about ourselves, this world, and the people around us and for that, we will come out much stronger and as better people.
