LIFE | The 2017 Word of the Year is EDIT

What is going on with 2017? I’ve found it difficult to be inspired this year, and if my social media feeds are any indication, we’re all feeling some type of way. It feels like we’re living in perilous times. We’re angry, angst-ridden, emotionally drained.…
