What a year we experienced in 2018. A pall has been cast over too many nations by corrupted so-called "leaders". The poor became poorer. The mass media devoted far too much attention to negative stories. Politics reached new lows. Fear mongering and division. Cowardly acts of terrorism. Continued willful ignorance and addiction to devices that exacerbate our collective apathy. Yet with all of that said, billions of people were happy in their lives. Let's have a renewed focus on happiness for 2019, shall we? Let's be kind to each other and give no undue time to the haters and dividers. The saying "Happy New Year" is for each and every one of us to make real.
