My hopes for 2012:
For myself and my family, good health and full time employment for those who need it.
For my community, that there be an end to the insanity. Three very young children killed last year because of gun violence in the city my job's located.....
For the country, that we all decide that we want a presidential campaign without mudslinging and demonizing opponents, and with solid ideas and plans instead.
For the world, peace.
