Right now it is 10:50 pm CST so in about 70 minutes or so we will have a new year. It's been a whirlwind of a year. Gas prices have soared to highs almost unseen in at my remembrance. We've seen them plunge down to fairly normal levels. We've had dreams of marriage wanked away from us. I think we will see marriage this year. We saw the election of Barack O'Bama. The whole world was watching this election. We've also seen ourselves plunge into a recession. I'm hoping that we see the country come out of this painful situation. Everyone makes predictions for the near year and so in this grand tradition I'm going to make some predictions. Hollywood will have a couple of really bad remake movies. America will more finical troubles. President Obama will stir the waters in Washington and that will create troubled waters. We will see arrests made in the trafficking of human beings. Some of the worst natural disasters will strike this year including one in U.S.A. We will see an earthquake strike within the U.S. that will be surprising because it doesn't normally happen there. Okay I'm done and umm…don't count on any of them happening.
What would I like to see happen in 2009? I'd like to see America waking up to the fact that all this hate and ignorance is killing us. We need to do more to see that no child is left behind while doing everything we can to remove standardized tests. The Earth and those who dwell upon it need us to clean up our act and stand up for their rights to live. I want to see full rights realized for all Americans and all men, women, and children throughout the world. Businesses need to return to our country and quit sending jobs to other countries. We need to be less greedy. We need to quit living as if we are all millionaires and start living properly.
Now what are my personal goals or resolutions for 2009. I want to actually figure out a way to end The Mirror. I want to gain weight without getting sicker. To be a better person, I want to do more to help people and the world out. Work on being comfortable with my own skin. I plan on continuing my writing. I am going to bring more local plants and animals to meet you in videos and photos. I'm out for now.
