Adios 2016. On a personal level, you kinda sucked.
There were great things that happened in the year. After all, something good had to happen within the time span of 365 days but the bad outweighed the good this year.
New Years traditionally is a great holiday. I love the idea of new beginnings and resolutions are always fun. But not this year.
This year there are no resolutions. My decision to eat healthier is one made for my knees and I already began. I've finished a novel and am working on another story so no need to resolve to write more.
No. This year I'm preparing to fight. Fight for the rights of Americans who will be losing their healthcare, their pensions, their safety, the rights to their own bodies.
This won't be the year to be quiet. This is going to be the year to protest, to complain, to insist on being heard.
Bring it on 2017. We're getting ready for you now.
