Hi, my friends. Long time no see.


The first fireworks to welcome 2023 are displayed on Sydney Harbour, Australia. Three hours later, Hong Kong rang in 2023 with a spectacular multimedia show over Victoria Harbour. Next, the majestic fireworks wrapped the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, set off over the Arc de Triomphe and Eiffel Tower, and lighted up the London skyline. 16 hours after Australia entered 2023, loud cheers are taking over Time Square, New York.


In the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), Avenger: Endgame ended in 2023. The Avengers finally defeated Thanos and half of all life erased by Thanos reversed, but we lost Iron Man and Black Widow.

In our actual universe, we are also in a 3-year “Endgame” with COVID-19. We will finally defeat this pandemic in 2023. Although we cannot reverse the people who lost in this 3-year, our lives will return to the proper “timeline”. Our society will restart. And our civilization will be reborn.
