Like many others, I was not sorry to see 2009 come to an end. A lot of misery, great expectations, dashed hopes, deferred dreams, and daily anxiety were packed into those twelve months. While I’ve certainly had more difficult and personally painful years, 2009 was difficult and personally painful for a record number of folks in this country. As 2010 dawns, one can’t help but hope for better this year.
