Frankly, it's pretty hard to have a freakin' feel great time tonite while so much devastation, war and death surrounds us.
For this reason, I believe we all should sit quiet - whether together or alone, at home or outdoors, in public or in private.
Instead of making alot of noise cheering a New Year that in all probability will not see many changes to the upside, think what each of us as individuals will do in the coming 12 months to ease suffering, spread knowledge, protect liberty and the right to pursue happiness and, in general, make this planet a better place than it is today.
Perhaps by getting serious, rather than drunk, something will happen.
If all this sounds too much then just Turn off the TV and make your own music.
