What a roller coaster. From start to finish, it only felt like there were about three normal days in the past 12 months. This year proved challenging for everyone, and working as a photojournalist in Colorado Springs gave me a little window into the lives of so many different people and the challenges they all faced. There was triumph and tragedy, and everything in between. One bright spot in the world, which I think overshadows all the loss and sorrow, was the resiliency of the people and communities I met while working in Colorado Springs and across the state. People persevered and tried their hardest to overcome incredible adversity in their lives and communities. There was passion, there loss, there was joy and there was uncertainty. But above all, there was resiliency.
