Happy New Year, dear readers!

Let’s hope 2023 is better than 2022 was.

I’m hoping . . .

For an end to Russia’s brutal invasion of Ukraine and that Vladimir Putin is brought to justice for his crimes against humanity.

That women in Afghanistan, Iran, Saudi Arabia and other countries that oppress them are liberated and achieve full equality.

That the number of extreme weather events decrease and all nations work to create a greener world.

That COVID-19 is no longer a threat.

That totalitarian governments stop trying to disrupt democracies in the West.

And for you and me and everyone else, peace, love and prosperity.
