The New Year Beckons – Be the Beacon of Hope for Tommorow
The newly acquired crispness in the air can mean only one thing; winter is quickly approaching. During this seasonal change, probably more so than most, we take our time to reflect upon the year that has passed. In doing so, we find the ways in which to be thankful for all we have seen and done over the last 365 days as well as see how we can change our outlook and going forward and make the world a better place.
This is a time to be thankful for our family, friends, neighbors, and freedoms. This is a time when many of us are are lucky enough to sit around the table and share a meal and some great conversation with people we may not have the luxury to see often.
As winter hits, this is also a time where many across this great nation are seeing the first signs of snow and watching from deer blinds the first days of the hunting season.
Naturally, this is a time to reflect upon our freedoms that we hold so dear and to share with others our efforts that make this nation the beacon of hope that it is across the world.
While we may quibble over some policy decisions and rhetoric, at the end of the day we are all Americans and we all want to see this nation be the best that it can be.
We can all agree that our rights are sacred, and that the founding father’s of these United States had the strength of vision to grant us the ability to work through differences and see the proverbial light at the end of the tunnel.
During this holiday season, please take the time to thank a veteran for all that they have given to our nations. Take the time to reach out to those in need and give them all the help that you, not the government, can spare. Take the time to listen to a child’s questions, and point them to the correct, conservative answers to our world’s ongoing plights and successes.
Take the time to think back on the year that is closing and be thankful that you live in a country that allows you to speak freely, express yourself and to be the person you strive and want to become.
Lastly, take the time to reflect on how you can make 2016 a better year for yourself, your children, your community and your nation. Get involved in a campaign, write letters to the editor, and support a cause you hold dear. Get involved and start the New Year off right by outing your principles first, and making each and every day the most that it can be.
