Re: Happy New Year

2012 was a special year with a lot of memorable events, both good and bad. It was a year of landmarks - the 50th anniversary of James Bond, the 100th year of the a Titanic, the 50th anniversary of the Cuban Missile Crisis, the 200th anniversary of the War of 1812. It was a year of farewells, when many famous celebrities and American legends died: Whitney Houston, Neil Armstrong, Donna Summer, Dick Clark. It was a great year in the world of motion pictures, with great movies such as The Hunger Games, The Avengers, The Hobbit. It was the year of the Summer Olympic Games in London, when Michael Phelps became the most decorated Olympian of all time. It was a year of devastation and tragedy - Hurricane Sandy, the mass shootings in Colorado, Oregon, and Connecticut.

Wishing everyone a healthy, safe, and happy New Year!
