At this turn of every year, I wish, and probably most of us wish, for a world more at peace.
This year I'm disturbed by seeing my country at war with itself. It's been divided for a long time, but now it looks to me more broken than ever.
Optimism does not come naturally to me. I have to fight for it. Yet I will try to hope that the ugliness of this past week will be the straw that breaks our stalemate's back and some good and sane changes can come about.
Peace to you all this Christmas and new year.
