I think it's only appropriate to write this post as Winter Storm Janus heads towards Maurice River Township.  Janus is actually the name of a two-faced god who looks back into the past and also into the future, which is why in January, we make New Year's resolutions.  In Rome, during the pre-Christian era, citizens made moral resolutions to help them treat each other with more respect.  In the 21st Century, we use January 1 as a time to reset goals such as eating healthy, working out, or starting a retirement plan.  As important as those commitments are; however, we shouldn't lose focus on making our world a better place.  I challenge you to resolve this year to set goals that not only benefit you and your family, but benefit the world as a whole.
