"Bad as It Was, 2017 Offers Hope for the Future" by Caille Millner, SF Chronicle (12-29-2017)

"On the national level, it’s been a year of horrific politics, xenophobic division and institutional erosion. The most vulnerable people in society were demonized and attacked; our economic and environmental future looks disastrous. The effects of the past year may require decades of recovery."

However:

". . . 2017 has also been about the ways regular people have constantly responded to all of this garbage with creativity and determination."
