Ring in the New
Let us ring out the old and ring in the new.
Let us leave behind the bad and carry only the good into 2017.
Let us remember the triumphs and the happy times in our hearts and
ponder the failures and lessons in our minds.
Let us move forward in joy, seeking peace and unity,
opening our hearts to love one another.
Let us keep our minds focused on the hard work of creating
the joy, grace, and goodness
that our hearts desire not only for ourselves,
but also for the whole world.
