Happy New Year!

I want to wish everyone happy new year.  I hope everyone gets a chance to prove themselves and while doing so, can make a contribution to building a better society.  2011 has been a tough year for some of us: continued housing slump, unemployment becoming chronic condition for some, those who got hit by natural and man-made disasters and those of us who lost our loved ones oversea in armed conflicts.

Through all these human struggles, I think we became closer to realizing that we are one global community with shared destiny.  Struggle for freedom and justice in one part of world is shared and felt through out our globe, thanks to social media and ever-connected global psyche.

I hope that 2012 will be a better year for all of us on the earth.  Whether we are struggling to find the next job, new home; rebuild from devastation left by tsunami or hurricane; regain the freedom and dignity from oppressors; or recover from the loss of loved ones, I hope we all make a progress toward our goals and can be thankful for 2012 at this time of the year 2013.

Let's all toast to a constructive, peaceful, productive and healing year 2012.
