The end of the year signals the
start of an age-old tradition: Setting a New Year's resolution. As the ball drops and the confetti
falls, the idea of a clean slate leaves everyone optimistic about the things they want to
accomplish or change in their lives.
The Advocate &
Democrat took to the streets and social media to find out the trends in this year's resolutions.
After a year filled with tragedies, like the Sandy Hook
Elementary School shooting in Newtown, Conn., many Monroe County residents are vowing to spend more
time with their families.
"I plan on spending more time with my
family and a lot more time with my wonderful kids," said Christian Wakefield.
Monroe County Schools Director of Technology Gary Sharp is beginning
2013 with a goal of making a difference.
"I want to do at least
one act of kindness a week," said Sharp. "If everyone did this, just think of how we could change
Monroe County and the world."
