It’s that time of year where many of us try to decide on our New Year’s resolution. What exactly is a New Year’s resolution? It’s a tradition most common in the Western Hemisphere where a person makes a commitment of self-improvement or, perhaps even offer consistent acts of kindness to others on a routine basis. Resolutions can be as simple as a young man deciding to support chivalry by executing qualities such as bravery, courtesy, honor and respect. Or, someone might decide it is time to change their bad eating habits. A school can even decide they are ready to resolve dress code issues by committing to a uniform. As one can see, resolutions vary and are quite vast.
Whatever resolution you choose for 2019, we offer our support and best wishes to you.
