List Rules These aren't your personal resolutions, but your hopes for the world and society as a whole.
Christmas is over and all the signs are there: your tree is becoming a fire hazard, the credit card bills have begun to roll in and the only pair of pants that will fit you have an elastic waistband. All of this signals the year is coming to its close, so to keep you from becoming a Scrooge, a healthy approach to the new year is needed. What better way is there to do that than to have hope for the future? What aspects of life, society, and culture do you hope see improvements in 2015?
2014 was okay, but I'll definitely be glad to leave it in the dust for the promise of a brighter 2015. Sure, there will be minor annoyances, like continuing to age and getting the year wrong on every letter, form, and check until at least May, but overall, 2015 gives us many reasons to be optimistic. Maybe even downright joyous.
Let's hope that things improve with the passing of the old year into the new year. What a year 2014 was... but what can we expect from the next twelve months? What resolutions do you hope the world achieves as a whole? Check out this list and vote up which areas you think could use improvement in 2015! And if you don't see it here, don't be shy... add your biggest hopes for the new year!
