Goodbye 2011,Hello 2012

Goodbye Dear Friend,

We have had some ups and downs, however, we prevailed

We have seen the worst of times and times of hope,yet,we never lost our faith

Everyday, All 365 of them came and went. sometimes it seemed so fast that it

took our breath away, however, we survived to see all 365 days.

We saw 365 days and 365 nights,setting of suns, the moons and the stars

We saw the end of days for others and the new beginning of new born babes

Life is a balance beam that we walk everyday

Sometimes it seems that others had one foot in heaven and the other in hell, when it looked like tragedy would be the end of the tale

There were too many lost children, home invasions, murders and wars.

Yet, You and I Dear Friend marched on, there is no giving up or giving in

The Sunshine is just as powerful as the Rain

We saw great humanitarian efforts in the time of tragedy

We saw the world torn apart and the world brought together by the actions or outcries of the people

We saw some live for the freedom of others and some die to protect the freedom of others

Hope is ahead looking bold and standing strong in the form of 2012

Ready or not here it comes!

      Hello, I agree, Only the strong survive and you have to find the strength to stand through the storms of life and get back up if you are ever knocked down.
