Happy New Year: Best Wishes To:

Our underappreciated military


The victims of Tropical Storm Sandy.

The children, survivors, and families of Sandy Hook Elementary School. The pain will never go away entirely, but each day is a new beginning. Never underestimate the resilience of the human spirit.
