May this New Year be pain free for you, as well as all the
Orchidians who have experienced physical and/or emotional pain. This
has been an extremely traumatic year for far too many. Let us,
worldwide try to understand one another, accept one another, respect
one another, and reach out in friendship and caring.
I wish all a Very Happy New Year, whether yours began sometime ago,
or January 1 2013, or later.
