It has been a difficult year. There is no doubt in that the year has thrown us numerous challenges and knocked us to and fro, sometimes leaving us completely defeated. And I can’t count the number of terrible things that have been experienced by all different kinds of people from all different kinds of places. And so I hope that we will meet the new year with a vigour never seen before. Because if anything good should come out of this, if there should be anything that the past year has taught us, if we want this to let us ignite something stronger within us, it should be the fact that 2016 has come at us time and time again, and we are surviving it. Yes, some of us we did not make it, but let us live not only for them, but for us, for ourselves. Here’s to another year gone by, for the ones that didn’t make it this far, and the ones that are still here, breathing. In and out. Here’s to 2017.
