IN OUR VIEW/A New Year: 2022 brings hope for a better future

December 31, 2021 at 10:00 p.m.

So here we are in 2022. It's a brand new year for America.

We survived another year of COVID-19 -- and another year of bitter partisan divisions in Washington and the country at large.

We' endured tragedies. But we came through them.

The stock market continues to climb, but we are also facing higher prices for just about everything we buy. And there are still many in our country who are living in poverty.

But our flag still flies. We are still one nation, under God.

We hope this year brings peace to all. We hope this year keeps our people--especially our children--safe from violence and other tragedies.

We hope this year brings a government that can rise above partisan squabbles and power grabs to put the needs of the country first.

We hope this year our people give more attention and importance to what unites us rather than what divides us.

We hope this year brings prosperity, health, love and happiness for all Americans.

We are sure many share those hopes. It should be remembered, though, hope alone never got anything done. It takes people. It takes action.

2022 could be one of the best years the U.S. ever had. It could be one of the worst. Or it could be just another year, unremarkable save for a few specific incidents.

The future of our nation is up to all of us. Remember that.

And have a happy New Year.
