A New Year

Each year is the same. It brings with it good and bad, progress and regression. Things are added to us and taken away just the same. Somehow a balance is struck in this unruly exchange.

Despite the misfortunes and failures that we will face, perhaps in this new year we can work a little harder to illuminate the goodness around us. Perhaps we could find it within ourselves to lend a listening ear and a helpful hand to our neighbors near or far despite our cultural or political differences. Wars could end, or be prevented. Diseases could be cured. The roots of equality could deepen. Love could be found, or created.

Though in a way each year is the same, perhaps this new year can be better than previous years. I wish us all the best.
