Hello. You see, you have a very important job. I’m not sure if you realize but a lot, and I mean a LOT, of people are counting on you.
If you aren’t already aware, the year prior to you was pretty god-awful for most. So for you 2017, I have just one request.
Please don’t mess up too bad.
Many see you as a sense of hope, don’t destroy that. I know there have been a lot of questionable decisions made in 2016 and you’re left to deal with them. And while I understand that you can’t undo anything already done, I ask that you don’t make anything worse.
2017, please be kind. We’ve all been through a lot but you have the power to make it better. Don’t abuse your power, don’t further damage us, don’t mess up.
You have one job 2017 and that is to be a fresh start. I beg you, for humanity’s sake, make things turn out a little better than we thought they might.
