2011 was a difficult year for the world, especially the countries that dealt with tremendous natural disasters. I hope that during the year 2012, they can work towards rebuilding their countries. I would like to help out as well, especially with my own home country, Japan.
But it is the new year! At church yesterday, one of the singers sang the song “This is a Day of New Beginnings” and talked about how we should remember what happened in the past, but we should move on. I agree. We will always remember the terrible disasters, but we will move on with positive attitudes, rebuilding one little step at a time. I was very happy to hear this positive message from the first day of the year.
A Happy New Year! Wishing you all a wonderful, fulfilling year!
