twenty fourteen, farewell

i start every new year with a prayer. i truly believe in this prayer and every line of it speaks to me. it has ever since i first heard it 2 years ago at our new years eve service. i will continue to pray it until it’s words become second nature.  & this year, in the midst of chaos, and sorrow it’s even harder to find much faith in mankind lately. it’s easy to start wondering how we got here. how hate has filled the hearts of so many. i have found myself so upset & confused i end up in tears. so instead of reflecting on these moments in 2014 we all wish to forget, i want to share the top 25 best moments of 2014 (in my opinion and in no particular order) that will restore your faith in humanity. the stories that remind us the human spirit is still strong. and i pray that in 2015 we can be better to each other. happy new year everyone.

let our New Year’s resolution be this: we will be there for one another as fellow members of humanity, in the finest sense of the word.
