Ring in the new year

.

Bells of the Greek Orthodox within the Holy Sepulchre

I will be glad to ring out the old year, so stained with blood, destruction, and plagues. 
Let's ring in the new year and strive for a more humane and just 2015. 
January 1 is World Day of Peace.  Make it so! 
.
Alfred, Lord Tennyson's poem "Ring Out, Wild Bells" was written in 1850.
See how timely it still is.
.
City Daily Photo bloggers are today posting their favorite photos of 2014.
Take a look.
Most are from cities outside the Middle East so I reckon they will be happy pictures. 
.
Best wishes for a good year to you all!

I think we all hope in vain, Dina. Would that it was so. But in the meantime, may 2015 be kind to you ...

I love this wonderfully positive post Dina. We have to keep the hope that things will improve or it would be too depressing oui. Here's wishing you a happy and healthy AND peaceful New Year.
