Happy New Year to the Women of 2013, and your family and friends. Including any fur-kids about the house.
The year in recap is playing on CBS this morning. I'm being reminded of the gaffes during the election. Of all the people who are no longer with us. Little stories of courage pop in and out. Tragedy dominates. Viral videos are getting a lot of attention.
I expect it's all necessary, for some reason. As a species, we humans tend to forget easily.
Facebook is overflowing with good New Year's Eve wishes - and angry tirades. Folks are still griping about the outcome of the election, about guns and shootings and our 'rights' and the fact that... they have proof that their view is correct and everyone else's is not. I haven't seen mention of the Fiscal Cliff, but it's likely there. As we go over it, we'll hear more and more about our disfunctional Congress. And, as a group, we'll lament that Congress isn't doing its job - but, no one will demand resignations... one and all. We'll just go on Facebook and complain.
One thing that strikes me throughout all of the news - the tirades - the announcements - the videos - is the fact that we, as a species, are in danger of losing our humanity.
