I find the start of something new to be an exciting time to launch new ideas. So, over the next few months of 2019, I plan to use my creative juices to change the status quo. I am not sure where this will take me, but I am determined to improve the quality of our lives and make a difference.
If you feel the same way, then you will want to take the time to read this issue from cover-to-cover. There are very good ideas by some of our talented writers on how to improve your well-being. From financial wisdom to health and fitness, The Light Magazine has you covered.
Many of our readers have commented on the Endangered Species series that we include in each issue as being one of their favorite articles. This issue features a species close to home, the Florida Panther. It is disheartening to know there are only 180 Florida Panthers left in the wild. As Floridians, we need to have our voices heard and we need to encourage our state and government officials to protect and nurture these beautiful creatures.
2018 was a year of many ups and downs in our country and in our world. Let’s hope and pray that the new year will be more stable and peaceful and we as Americans become less divided. The bitterness and hate in politics and in news reporting need to go away. Unfortunately, with the 2020 elections one year away, the anger and bitterness probably won’t.
As we begin this year let’s make our voices heard to make change. Let’s be open-minded as Americans believing in freedom of speech, freedom of religion and freedom of choice.
May God bless America. May God bless us all.
