Looking Forward to the Future

So much has happened this past year that we will never forget. This was the year we found our voice and we discovered what we needed to do. It was the year that changed us, and we couldn’t be more thankful for all that 2016 provided. Near the beginning of the year, we began truly learning and understanding the principles which we write about weekly. A little later we began some debates in our history class which ignited a spark in us. These debates made us realize that there was something that needed to be done and we could be the ones to do it. At the end of May we came up with our America Restored website and began working hard. Finally, in June 2016, we published our first writing and everything took off from there. We worked every week to read more and more from those who came before us and used what we learned from them to publish entry after entry. As we did this, we received amazing feedback. After returning to school, we continued to learn and continued to write. In October, we were so lucky to be able to put up our official, professional website and that same month we were blessed to be on a radio interview. We are so grateful for all the support, knowledge, and experience we’ve gained from 2016, but we are so excited to see what comes in 2017. We hope to find more ways for the necessary to be heard. We are looking forward to seeing what is in store for us and to see what we can learn. As it is now a fresh start, we are making it a goal in our lives to never allow others to stand in our way but to continue moving forward and progressing and we hope you will do the same. Each year that passes gets us closer to the inevitable turning point we are preparing for and we are anxiously awaiting the outcome of all our efforts. The years that fall behind us can teach us, and warn us, we can learn from the experiences and mistakes of others but, if we won’t take action in the present and in the future, then the past doesn’t matter.
“New Year’s Day. A fresh start. A new chapter in life waiting to be written. New questions to be asked, embraced, and loved. Answers to be discovered and then lived in this transformative year of delight and self-discovery.”- Sarah Ban Breathnach
