We may have started the year with so much hope, but things got really messed up and it’s a-okay to be sad about it. To say that this year has been rough is an understatement, and we’re only halfway through it. But good things can still happen even at times like this, and we should still take the time to be grateful for those.
This is why this #ChalkAsks is all about the positive stuff that happened in the first half of 2020 straight from our readers.
