The New Year 1951 can Provide Only Time
It’s easy to rip off a tattered page of the calendar to reveal a new year. It’s not so easy to erase the sins, problems and uncertainty that were the product of the processing months.
Ripping off a calendar page is not a sure passport to Utopia or a signal that all that is bad has gone in the wastebasket with the old calendar. The year 1951 is only a continuation but it can be a starting point for a better life.
A year is not animated in that it is powerless to rule the world...
