As you read this missive, the planetary clock will have already struck 18. Gifts will have been opened, Family will have come and gone. Perhaps you will have taken a moment to wonder: did anything good happen last year?
As far as bad news is concerned, there has been plenty. I’m not talking about the dangerous attacks on truth, justice, democracy, and the rule of law that are coming from our White House. Not terrorism either, or being abandoned by Willie Taggart. We are a resilient bunch. We can recover form all these blows.
