The idea behind Who Won the Week is to give you the opportunity to select who (or what) you think “won” this past week. Your selection can be anyone or anything — politicians, celebrities, athletes, authors, bloggers, your friends or family members, books, movies, TV shows, businesses, organizations, whatever.
I will be posting this prompt on Sunday mornings (my time). If you want to participate, write your own post designating who you think won the week and why you think they deserve your nod. Then link back to this post and tag you post with FWWTW.
2021 is finally over. According to aUSA TODAY/Suffolk University poll of Americans conducted last week, people were not happy with 2021. In response to an open-ended question to describe 2021 in a single word, just 14% offered adjectives that were positive, assuming “exciting” is a good thing. The rest chose various versions of bad, from “catastrophe” and “chaos” to “frightening” and “failure.”
But the good news is that, when asked to come up with one word that best describes their mood about 2022, close to half of Americans said “hopeful.”
All I can say is that it’s a good thing I wasn’t included in that survey, as that would not have been a word I would have chosen.
Be that as it may, my Who (or What) Won the Week winner this week is hopefulness.
What one word would you choose to describe your outlook about 2022?
What about you? Who (or what) do you think won the week?
