Happy New Year

Happy New Year!

Now that the new year has arrived, we look forward to the months to come, wondering what they might bring us. Many of us have made new year’s resolutions. We have vowed to quit smoking or to take off the extra weight we carry, for instance. Without a doubt, the vast majority of us would like to count on a healthier and happier future, for ourselves and our loved ones.

Perhaps it is time for gratitude as well. Gratitude for our own privileged circumstances and for the incredible fortune of having been born in our part of the world into our lives, instead of some distant place which some might call a “developing country.” How about extending our compassion to reach those not as fortunate as we are? How about including them in our thoughts and efforts?

People all over the world are really more alike than they are different, no matter who they are or where they live.

All of us, all over the world, as different as we may be from one another, share certain desires and needs. We wish to live free from persecution and harm, pray that our children and loved ones are safe and healthy, and that our elders may enjoy their final years with their dignity and health preserved.

Sincerely,
