|Every year people come out with their best of lists, worst of lists, and a bunch of hard to keep New Years resolutions. This year I decided to do something a little different. I thought I’d share a few things I’d really like to see happen in 2006. They are not listed in any special order, I’ve just put them here for you to consider and enjoy. I’d love your comments on any of them, by post or e-mail!|
- No rain on our parade. ~ I live in So Cal. The Rose Parade is an annual tradition for millions of people here, both in person and on television. It has never rained on the parade in my lifetime. I’d like to see that streak continue.
- Civility in government. ~ Years ago government service was viewed as a noble cause. No more. If we returned to a belief that we are all in this together, that sometimes people of the other political party have worthwhile viewpoints, and that all of our elected leaders are really interested in moving America forward, we’d be a lot better off.
- The Angels win another baseball pennant. ~ I did not join the bandwagon when the Angels finally won in 2002. I have followed this team since the Bill Rigney days. Another championship would be wonderful.
- People investing in people, not institutions. ~ Sounds pretty simple yet many folks choose not to find the time necessary to do this. Imagine what the world would look like if each one of us did so, with our time, lives, and money.
- My son graduate from college. ~ I’ll admit there is some financial incentive here for me, but think about it, I was really proud when he graduated from High School. I can’t wait to see him in his cap and gown as he graduates from Auburn University.
- USC as National Champions. ~ Maybe I’ll get this one early.
- Affordable health care. ~ As a missionary with Adventures in Life, I am not a millionaire. That pretty much rules out buying any health insurance for me and my family, and yet, I am not poor. What do the really poor people do?
