Out with the old and in with the new

Another Voice

January 2, 2013
By Vicki Westling , The OBSERVER

The year in review we are seeing it everywhere we look and headlining all printed material. But what will 2012 be remembered for, really? Will it be the results of the election that was won by President Obama who ran on the promise of no tax increase for the middle class, or Mitt Romney's loss due to his 47 percent gaffe? How about the Affordable Health Care Act, better known as Obamacare, that gives added health care benefits to most but at a greater cost than expected? Or will it be remembered for the violent murder of 20 innocent school children in Newtown, Conn., giving rise to another public outcry for a revision to the current gun control laws? Maybe there will be remembrances of the Arab Spring, the deplorable massacre of thousands of innocent Syrians, or the murder of Ambassador Stevens and three other innocent patriots? And, let's not forget the 'fiscal cliff' or debt ceiling debates. Wasn't there any good news in 2012 that will help us to be better individuals where we can live in a bi-partisan country with our elected officials acting like grown ups rather than bickering children? Will this year be very different from the past year?
