I can't believe it's 2016. It reminds me of when I was young, and we all thought the year 2000 would be like The Jetsons. (I do still wish that we had flying cars and robots like Rosie the Robot to do housework, though.)
What will 2016 actually be like, though? Will there be great leaps in technology that will revolutionize the world we live in? Will there be great leaps in compassion that will revolutionize the way we live together on earth?
Wouldn't that be nice?
Each time the calendar rolls over into a new year, we are given new hope that this will be the year that everything changes. Or that one thing will change. Someone will cure cancer. Someone will figure out how to prevent Alzheimer's. Or maybe someone will figure out how humanity can live together in peace.
There's always hope.
