2016 was a dynamic year, with so much happening in various aspects of American history.

The democratic process produced the United States’ first president without any governing experience, the oldest president elected and a president known to waffle as he tweets his way to the White House.

TV networks bring out all kinds of experts to talk about what they expect will happen. But no one really knows what will happen to the United States as a nation,

In Winston-Salem, expectations are high that the Central Library will open on time in the spring and that the city will move closer to becoming the City of Arts and Innovation, but what about those in poverty? Expectations are high that the mayor’s Poverty Thought Force will yield some action in that respect, but when will that be? We’ll have to wait and see.

We have a new governor in North Carolina, finally, but we still have the GOP majority in the General Assembly, which has proven how it is power hungry and wants to thwart Democrat Gov.-elect Roy Cooper’s power. Expectations are low that any progress will be made in the areas Cooper want work on, but with the expected new elections for the General Assembly next year, some have hope that that won’t be the case.

Let’s see what 2017 will bring, but you’d better keep up so that you can continue the fight for the rights that have been trampled upon and the new ones that could join them.
