Happy New Everything

If there was ever a day for new beginnings, this is it. The thousands digit on the world’s odometer has just turned. A fresh year, a new century, and a new millennium await. The history of the twenty-first century is ready to be written -- by you.

Now is the day to apply what we have learned from past experience, and to make the world an even brighter place. Now is the time to do something about not just the symptoms, but the fundamental causes of our difficulties.

We have come a long way to get to this day. Let us make the most of it. The sparkling new era in front of us deserves more than just half-hearted new year’s resolutions. Now is the time for true and sustained commitment.

The world at this moment is full of wonderful possibilities. Let this truly be a day of great beginnings. Make the commitment to live, to give, to love, to be a positive force. You’ve tasted the superficial and found it lacking. Now is your opportunity to live with meaning and purpose. Make a real difference and make it a great new year.

— Ralph Marston
