I have a great deal of compassion and sympathy for the class of 2021. In many ways they have had a harder time of it than the class of 2020. Well done to all who have survived and put this in your life events folder to be brought out as one of the many times of celebrations in your past.

It is interesting that the class of 2020 never had the ceremony that they were promised this time last year in December. I doubt very much they care very much at this stage, but it is probably a more bitter pill for the parents and families who were not able to celebrate.

However, I think that perhaps things like graduations, weddings, and various other celebrations had become too big, too ostentatious, too expensive and too commercialized. Perhaps we will be turning to a time where small more intimate celebrations of life events will become the norm.
