Goodbye 2008, Hello 2009.

There are some time periods about which the best we can say of them is they will be over soon. 2008 will end at midnight tonight--about time. It's been a difficult year economically and also because of world events that have taken place. Many problems that face the general public and the frum communities specifically have come to the forefront. It hasn't been pleasant to have to face realities that we've been avoiding until we couldn't avoid them any longer.

But 2008 is fast on its way out the door. 2009 is a brand new, fresh year. In 2009 we can face all our problems with strength and determination. We can come up with solutions and put them into place. We can change what needs to be changed. We can be innovative and creative. 2009 is a clean slate and we can influence what will be written on that slate. WE can do it if WE pull together.

And while we are at it, let's all have a Happy New Year!

However if you are eager for 2008 to be over note you will have to wait 1 extra second. They added a leap second this year.
