At the end of the year it has become a journalistic tradition to recap the year's top stories, to recall the highlights and low points of the months and to remember those who have left us. It is also a time to look forward with hope… This year that reach for hope and improvement seems more difficult than at anytime in my memory.
“It's Auld Lang Syne time again. Robert Burns is credited with "collecting" the lyrics for the old Scots' drinking and dancing ballad that's become a traditional part of New Year festivities. The most memorable verses: "Should old acquaintance be forgot and never brought to mind?" and the chorus, "For auld Lang Syne, my dear, for auld Lang Syne, we'll take a cup of kindness yet, for auld Lang Syne," are oft' described as reminders of "the good old times" amidst new beginnings. That's a tough task this year. Saying goodbye to 2012 won't be hard. But looking forward with hope for a better year in 2013 is a real challenge!” … Oliver North
Happy New Year!
