A new Horizon

Welcome 2005, it was wonderful to bring in the New Year with family and friends last night, even if midnight was well past my regular bed time. I did get to sleep in until nine this morning, which made up for the 1AM bedtime, but for some reason I was still pretty tired.

This morning, I made the usual drive to my grandparent’s house. Being the NPR junkie that I am, I was listening to Weekend Edition. I, like many others this week have been completely awestruck listening to story after horrific story about the victims of the tsunami. Today, Jacki Lyden, read from a children’s book in which a Tsunami hits Japan. I was moved by the story, indeed we are fragile but resilient people.

My heart goes out to all those in the world that are mourning today. Hopefully the New Year can bring a renewal of hope, and belief in the human race, that we as the human family can help each other through these trying times.
