The pomegranate has a long history in Greek cuisine and figures prominently in the myth of Persephone. Her mother Demeter, grief-stricken, did not allow anything on earth to grow when her daughter was abducted by Hades and taken to the underworld.

As anyone familiar with the ancient Greek myths knows, eating or drinking anything in the underworld meant you would have to stay there. Since Persephone had only consumed the six seeds, it was decided that she would spend six months with Hades and then return to visit her mother on earth for the rest of the year. The myth explained the changing of the seasons.

Person of the year! Dear God, is 2020 really over? And, really, has it been just a single year? More so, who would even want to be the person of a year that has brought such pain and fear, such unmatched loneliness in the quarantined homes of our past gatherings, and in the exposed consciousness of our timeless frailty? The answer is, yes, 2020 is almost over. And, yes, despite all the many moments when it felt like the opposite, it has been just a single year. But, no, the person of the year is not the face of a year of struggle. As the final days fall out of this Pandora’s box of a year, The National Herald welcomes hope in the face of Dr. Albert Bourla.
