THE YEAR 2016
During the early months of 2016, the world was shinning.
The promise of progress and positive change was in the air.
I married the love of my life in early January.
There is no doubt in my mind that 2016 has been a difficult year, full of change, challenges, losses, promises, conflicts and uncertainty.
Many loved ones have been lost that we are aware of and plenty must have been lost that we do not know about.
Personally, it’s been difficult for me because I have seen the ‘melting away‘ of institutions that have been very sacred to me.
I do not have today the hope, the joy and the looking forward to the next year (2017) that frequently accompanies this festivity.
I’m very concerned about 2017.
It’s lost the shine and luster that usually comes with new beginnings.
