A look at 2009

This was one of those years where dueling emotions occurred simultaneously. Celebrating the happiest of moments with some, coincided with the lowest of moments for others. Encouragment was found in the life that EMK (Edward Moore Kennedy) lived. With all the tragedy he saw and endured he could have just given up, but instead he rose above becoming the champion for those who had none. President Obama said it best, "Through his own suffering Ted Kennedy became more alive to the plight and suffering of others." May suffering not leave a mark of bitterness, but in turn make us more compassionate to those around us.

A few memorable moments of 2009 (in random order):

Witnessing President Obama become the 44th President
Lots of beginnings were celebrated this year! And although we may not have listed all of the wonderful moments celebrated in this blog entry. We shared in the excitment
