  • A New Year And A Fresh Start

    As I sat in front of the TV late Wednesday night watching the final seconds of 2008 tick away in Times Square, it was very evident that Americans were eager to ring in a new year.

    Maybe more so than any other year in a long, long time.

    No doubt about it, 2008 was a rough year for many people, for many different reasons, and most people were ready to put the year to rest.

    With the new year comes a breath of fresh air and the hope that America and the world will be a better place to live in 2009.
