Distancing - which means I was lucky compared to others, although it struck at the worst time.

Interestingly, my country's top virologist and face of the fight against covid is named Christian Drosten and the top US health institute is CDC. A ray of hope?

ElMo,

Your question should be two sentences.

Please change:

So many (mostly negative) things that marked the year 2020 started with the letter C and D, which one impacted you the most?

To:

Sorry, private matters made me skip the "poll" activity for a few days. Happy New Year and let's get back to work.

Congratulations, ElMo. :D

This is a very good poll. Since I had several deaths around me this year, it was really hard to choose for me.

Thank you, guys.

This year can just get better. A friend of mine poisoned himself. His 90+ y.o. mother died. He lived and cared for her the last years. She suffered on dementia, at least died. His brother and sister just had the heritage in mind, so he would have to leave the house he grew up. That was too much for him. It was foreseeable counting all in all over the last two years. All he said would have matched to that. But he retreated more and more and I didn't realize it. I wouldn't have thought that he would kill himself. The last time he didn't answere anything and I thought I've said something wrong. On the other hand I knew about his mother and had dark forebodings.

He was a fine guy who formerly studied arts (Images/creative), always  daring, but funny. He was a real film freak who could have told you a few hundred good indenpendend movies instantly. And he had a fine humor. We had much fun. According to the people who told me, he died in August. He was 62 y.o. A toast on Robert! Cheers!

Thank you albstein. I hope so, too. When I look at the news, I see many bad people, but also way more good people who stand together for each other. Just look at the guys who did genetic work against cancer. When they heard about the corona virus, they changed their work for researching covid vaccines instantly. Such  people give hope to many people like me. It hurts to lose beloved people. But there are many good people who are worthy for carrying on. And did you see the last Schwarzenegger video? I love that guy!

I think I know which video you mean. Yes, that was wholesome. Too few people realize that Arnie doesn't just have big muscles but a big heart too (and his brain isn't that little either). I've read a story of him encouraging a guy who was struggling in life and depressed. The way Arnie lifted that guy up and empathized with his problems came unexpected from someone whose life has been a complete success story.

Arnie made the best out of himself. I never thought he were just a muscle mountain. When I was a kid in the 80s, he visited "Wetten Dass?", a common tv show. He was sympathetic over the whole time and made a big impression on me. He often did the rough muscle man in the movies and therewith played the role he was measured. He was clever enough to play the game. His commitment for environment as the govenor of California is legendary. He is one who makes the world better.
