The hum of the crowd grew, as the lights got brighter and the music blared.
We held hands and shivered. The cold was bitter, but it was excitement that pulsed through my body, as we all watched the clock count down, and waited. Would the world stop? Would it all crash? I assured my young children that we would all be fine, but wondered.
10, 9, 8… Happy New Year! As we all shouted, a palpable pause struck the crowd. The year 2000 arrived with only fireworks and hope.
Counting down to 2017, I feel more apprehensive than ever.
