Happy New Year!
I woke up this morning and checked the headlines. This is what I saw:
In city after city around the world, people celebrated the new year in peace.
That didn’t happen by accident. Imagine the amount of work that went into ensuring that when we woke up, we saw only happy headlines.
The headlines we didn’t see were the real story. The real story: Around the world, hundreds of thousands of overworked, exhausted, and often unappreciated security officials — cops, soldiers, intelligence officials — did their jobs and did them tirelessly.
(And the dogs, too.)
Congratulations. Well done. Thank you. And a very Happy New Year to each and every one of you.Published in
