The year in pictures 2015


The year in pictures 2015
We ended 2015 the way we started, confronting terrorism both abroad and in the U.S. The Charlie Hebdo attack in early January in Paris shocked the world with its brazenness. The Paris and San Bernardino attacks at the end of the year dramatically increased our awareness of a global threat as the world confronted an increased sense of insecurity in our daily lives.

In between, we made history with the restoration of diplomatic relations between the U.S. and Cuba, the legalization of same-sex marriage nationwide and a landmark climate change agreement. We celebrated Team USA’s third World Cup title, saw American Pharoah become a Triple Crown winner and applauded Serena Williams as Sportsperson of the Year. Deflate-gate took away some of the luster from Tom Brady and the Patriots.
