Names of people who have died from COVID on a fence in Brooklyn, New York
In this Thursday, May 28, 2020 file photo, a fence outside Brooklyn’s Green-Wood Cemetery is adorned with tributes to victims of COVID-19 in New York. The memorial is part of the Naming the Lost project which attempts to humanize the victims who are often just listed as statistics. The wall features banners that say “Naming the Lost” in six languages: English, Spanish, Mandarin, Arabic, Yiddish and Bengali. (Mark Lennihan/AP Photo)

Let’s face it, 2020 has been a garbage pile. The pandemic has killed at least 335,000 people and left millions unemployed. Police killed unarmed people of color. We endured a bitter election. A philosopher explains what we can learn about ourselves and our world from this hard year.
