Like so many people, I’m going to be glad to see the back of 2016. It was a terrible year, marred with the loss of some of my favourite performers and people a little close to home, as well as devastating acts of terror. I can’t wait until the next one starts. But before it does, I’m taking a moment to remember that good things did happen in 2016. Trust me! Good things like the following. Take a moment to read back and remember them!
