With the coronavirus pandemic, continuing social unrest and a shaky economy impacting the United States in ways that we’ve never seen before, 2020 has been a tough year for everyone. We’ve dealt with cataclysmic shifts to our physical, mental and emotional health, and we’ve done our best to weather the changes to everyday life that now compose our "new normal."

Part of that new normal is mourning and learning to live different lives in the absence of hundreds of thousands of people whom COVID-19 has taken from us — and to live without some of the most iconic world-changers in entertainment and politics. As we sit on the precipice of a new year, it’s important to memorialize and honor those we’ve lost but will never, ever forget.
