Now that we need to say goodbye to 2015, we all need to remember a few things that happened this year. Some of us had many good times to remember from 2015, but, the truth is, that 2015 has been mostly a tough year.
Violence is everywhere and has led to thousand killings this year. Fortunately, there are also other, better things to remember, such as human progress. For example, more than 190 countries put their differences aside to stand against climate change.
The following pictures are here to remind us that good and bad times will always co-exist, no matter what. We just have to always try to make our lives better.
