We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year’s Day.
Drop the last year into the silent limbo of the past. Let it go, for it was imperfect, and thank God that it can go.
Be always at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let each new year find you a better man.
The new year stands before us, like a chapter in a book, waiting to be written. We can help write that story by setting goals.
Let our New Year’s resolution be this: we will be there for one another as fellow members of humanity, in the finest sense of the word.
Leave the sorrows, pain, and sadness behind and let?s welcome the brand New Year with a smile.
