Hope your New Year is full of blessings!

This statue of Pope John Paul II is in Downtown Phoenix, outside the St. Mary's Basilica church, It was put up in honor of the Pope's visit to the church in 1987

My three favorite daily photos for today are:

Los Angeles, California

Sydney, Australia

Seattle, Washington - Wow!

Of all the popes I liked John the best. I also like your photo of him in your city.

I don't have a lot to say about last year or this new year but here are some thoughts...

I hope 2009 will be better than 2008, 2007, and 2006. I do think our government will be inspired by our new President Obama -- at least I hope so.

I would like to see the War in Irag end and I would like to see the killing stop everywhere.

It is my hope that Japan will stop slaughtering whales and raping virgin forests.

And I hope the people will lose their clubs and no longer club baby seals to death.

What a world we have and live in. Just think 2009 could be so much better than it will be.
