Personally, I cannot remember a year in which more people that I know have been so vocal in their desire for the current calendar year to be over. It’s been a year so surreal that Merriam Webster actually named “surreal” the Word of the Year. This 2 minute film by Google reviews the top searches of 2016 through footage of the moments that broke our hearts, divided us, and pulled us together over the past 365 days. After a tumultuous year, marked by moments of intense tragedy and polarization, Google manages to bring us something surprisingly uplifting and hopeful.
Let’s celebrate love!
