For me, 2013 was a year of joy, pride, fear, exhaustion, love, shock, pain and laughs. Although I hate to see 2013 come to an end, I am hopeful for 2014. But, I believe that in moving forward, you must first look back and see where you have been.

2013 was a year that the human race was ripped apart both physically and emotionally. But, now we are on the verge of a new beginning. It's time to learn from our mistakes and heal our wounds.
