Carmona: Make 2014 a year to remember

 Make 2014 a year to remember, for all the right reasons. 

This was the New Year’s message from Pre­si­dent Anthony Carmona yesterday, who called on the nation to come together to make the year one that citizens can be proud of.

The arrival of the New Year, he said, is a time of great promise, and the opportunity for a new beginning must not be wasted. 

“In the year past, we may have experienced mixed levels of success in our personal lives and in our interactions with others, but that should not colour our expectations for the coming year,” said Carmona.

“Reflecting on what was and, at times, what could have been, is expected but that must not be the only focus for the New Year. 

He said we should look ahead to the future to determine what we can do to make a positive difference in the lives of all citizens.

“Let our words, deeds, and actions speak affirmatively and give a genuine voice to our shared humanity. It is easy to speak of love and peace but without compassion, respect, forgiveness and tolerance, these sentiments are hollow,” said Carmona.

“We have to take up the mantle of responsibility to be a better people, to do right to all manner of men and wo­men, to let good sense and goodwill prevail,” he concluded.
