“It has been a tough year for everyone. As we begin this new year, we all hope and pray that the next one will be better in every sense of the word.”
As the residents of the city bid goodbye to 2020 with a short speech by the mayor, there was optimism in the air. As people lit candles with messages of hope, there was relief more than elation at seeing the back of a year which almost everyone wanted to forget.
They felt that the beginning of a new year brought a ray of hope for mankind to start afresh.
