Every year the UN issues a theme for this day. In 2020, the theme is
"Happy Together". This theme was announced well before the onset of the
global coronavirus pandemic in 2020. It is quite ironic that this theme was
selected, while the virus caused such extreme social distancing. With the
whole world caught up in this pandemic, it becomes easy to recognize and
appreciate how family, friends, colleagues and humanity in general impacts
