The intro to “End of Year” posts are perpetually difficult for me.
I always want to highlight some of the best and worst of the year, like linking to some adorable puppy video and making a joke about how we’re lucky North Korea hasn’t bombed us yet.
But as I was sifting through the memories of 2017 all I could come up with was the bad. The lows. The worst. All events I really didn’t want to highlight but that seemed to be ingrained in my life as the major world events.
