Well let's see. There was the whole election mess, Brexit, Trump, the immigration crisis, Orlando, Paris, Belgium, Alton Sterling and Fernando Castile, and much, much more..
Not to mention a whole string of celebrity deaths, including Carrie Fisher, who just passed today
Also, Muhammad Ali, Leonard Cohen, Alan Rickman, David Bowie, Prince, and Harambe
So in conclusion, 2016 was god awful. And there's still 3 days to go. What could it have in store for those 3 days?
