Sun Editorial: Here’s to a safe, happy, healthy and wonderful 2017

Let’s all resolve to make our lives, and the lives of those around us, better.

BY SUN STAFF

Welcome to 2017!

Another year has come and gone, in seemingly speed-of-light fashion. Out with the old, in with the new, as they say.

Last week, in our last issue of 2016 and our online posts, we closed the door on the year.

The end of a year is a chance for us to reflect on all that has happened over the last 12months. It can be a sad time, a happy time and a quizzical time all at once.

But the end also brings a new beginning.

With 2017 officially here, let’s all re-solve to make our lives, to make the lives of those around us, better. Let’s be a little more caring, a little more unselfish, a little more polite. Let’s work harder and smarter, instead of longer. Let’s give a little more to those who aren’t as fortunate as we are. Let’s learn from the mistakes of our past, and make our future bigger and brighter.

Here at The Sun, we resolve to serve the community even better than we have. We resolve to be a better community business partner, be better reporters and provide an even better product for our clients. We resolve to improve the quality and quantity of our content. We re-solve to listen with open ears to your thoughts, ideas and concerns.

To that end, we’d love to hear from you on how we’re doing, and what you think we could be doing better.

Please share your thoughts via e-mail at news@mtlaurelsun.com.

Help make our New Year’s resolutions a reality by playing a part in your paper. Here’s to a wonderful year ahead!
