happy new year!

Here it's barely New Year's Eve, but on the other, sooner side of the world, the festivities have already begun...

In Baghdad (or at least in the Green Zone)...

in Johannesburg, where this beautiful lady points the way...

Earlier, in stately Kuala Lampur...

Upcoming Events

and sooner still in mad Sydney...

The world says "Happy New Year!"

And here at the Voice, looking through all those "year in pictures" reviews, we remember, and say "Happy New Year!" right back.

To the people in Krakow, and...

all those folks who went to see Billy Graham at Flushing Meadows...

To America's ambassador to the world, John Bolton...

and this little girl, forced to listen to Tony Blair...

To a grandmother in Lebanon...

and everybody in Iraq...

To these homeless children in Balakot, Pakistan, where winter has come after the earthquake...

And to those still waiting, after the tsunami...

To Amina Pombor of Washington DC, who took in some children from Sierra Leone...

like Memunatu Mansaray, who got a new arm.

Usually the new year is shown as a baby in diapers, next to the departing year - hooded death with scythe. But why must the new year always be a baby? Can't it arrive as an angel?
