New Year’s Pleas

It’s that time of year again. Suddenly, everyone vows to get more exercise, put down the cigarettes for good, and give back to the community. Are you really going to give up your favorite vices while volunteering and whipping your body into shape in 2015? Probably not.

New Year’s Resolutions are a source of ridicule and skepticism more so than encouragement and progress. So why not skip the insincere promises to avoid February’s self-loathing? This January, try something new. Instead of resolutions, let’s make some New Year’s pleas.

2014 was pretty bleak, to say the least. Rampant police racism, the Ebola epidemic, constant terrorism in the Middle East, and North Korea’s attempt to deprive the world of Seth Rogen and James Franco, are just the tip of the rapidly melting iceberg (subtle nod to the current climate disaster) of this past year.

In the spirit of positive change, let’s make some pleas for 2015. Most are out of your personal control, so no fault falls upon your shoulders when failure ensues. To start off, I’ve included some New Year’s pleas of my own.

Police: Please stop executing innocent civilians based on the color of their skin.

Internet Hackers: Private photos are usually intended to stay private. Violating dozens of celebrities’ privacy and exposing their naked bodies to anyone with Internet access is disgusting. Gain a conscious, or at least feign a conscious, and be more responsible with your Internet activity in 2015.

Various Government Officials: If you could keep some abortion clinics open, that would be stellar. Stop imposing irrational regulations that align with your personal religious beliefs instead of passing legislation that is truly for the good of the people.

NFL Players: Can you just take your anger out on the field and leave it there? The domestic violence and widespread abuse carried out by NFL players was out of control in 2014. Even worse? The negligent response from the NFL, and their hesitation to impose suspensions on abusive players- induced only  in Ray Rice’s case, when horrific footage of the abuse went viral.

2015 is here. These are my personal pleas for the New Year, do you have any of your own?
