Happy New Year! I thought you should know that The Emancipation Proclamation is 150 Years Old today. On January 1st, 1863, The Emancipation Proclamation was signed. It offered freedom for slaves and led the way to total abolition of slavery in the United States. The 13th Amendment, passed on December 6th, 1865, finally abolished slavery. There are images from that period for your perusal on theroot.com. As we close the door on 2012 and welcome 2013, may our New Year be filled with peace, abundant blessings, love and bliss. Thank You for stopping by… More below!

Write my Life passionately
2012 has been a remarkable year with much sadness and joy to reflect on; Hurricane Sandy, the tragedy of Sandy Hook Elementary, the 23 year old rape victim in India, Obama’s re-election, many new blog friends, loss of many greats, and the birth of many new creative minds… Let’s keep writing, let’s reach for our peace flags often, and follow our hearts dreams in 2013. I’ve added some resolutions that tickled my fancy in block quotes… and my three above each paragraph. Stay Happy and Blessed. Happy New Year!

Happy New Year: May your year be bright, rich and colorful...
HAPPY NEW YEAR’S DAY!!! What a gift to be alive in 2011… Resolutions, celebrations, invocations and more, won’t change the fact that we are blessed to be here, and must make the best of this new year. I’m not quite sure which is easier; endings or beginnings? Either way, we are no longer on the cusp of a New Year and I can’t help but reminisce about the year that ended and applaud the new one before us.
The year 2010 was full of promises and harsh surprises. The economy continued to take a dive and we all learned to figure out ways to manage. The meaning of family and friends gained a new resonance and our homes mattered. The President delivered on a number of promises. Political seats were lost and won. The weather dipped and sprung with extremes in temperatures… we all made new friends, on and offline, and for some, new enemies… life moseyed on. 2011 will be better. If there is anything I wish for our world in 2011, it will have to be for Peace and Love. May everyone find something to smile about this year. Happy New Year!
For 2011, I send 12 gifts/blessings/wishes to each of you:
♥ Peace & Love
♥ Divine Protection
Again, here’s to a very HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
Some Food for Thought: What do you wish for the New Year? How to you plan to make this year your best year ever? What impact will you plan to make on your life and on others in your community?
I would love to hear from you: Please leave me a comment. Thank You!
