What a year. One of the most terrible years since my birth is coming to an end. (Nine days to go). Let me talk about myself first. I lost my mother this year (a very deep emotional cut in my life), which made me mentally and nervously stressed. And then Corona. Every one of us has to live with the fear of catching it, despite all our safety precautions. And what happens then? But now to the subject of nature. Donald Trump has finally been voted out of office. One of the most dangerous men on this planet. We had very bad storms and fires again this year. The IUCN added or updated 31 species as extinct. We had the devastating oil spill disaster on the coast of one of the most beautiful paradises in the world, Mauritius. Thanks to a crowdfunding campaign, enough money was raised to prevent even worse. Let me make a few wishes: I would like to get well and somehow manage on my own, without hospital stays and medication. Everything is kind of hard for me because I miss my parents so much (my father died in 2017). My patience is being severely tested at the moment. I wish very much optimism and luck for my fellow beeings and myself. I wish that in countries in South America, Africa (Madagascar) and Asia, where the destruction of nature is progressing so quickly, people would finally wake up and learn to live with nature again. Perhaps this is also a way to combat Corona in the long term. I wish you all the best and take care of yourselves.
