    Human memory is an interesting thing. Time can water it down, remove the impact and significance of past events. As I watched the 13th anniversary commemoration ceremonies for 9/11, I was reminded of that.More >>

We are closing the book this week on a year that saw many changes, challenges and opportunities. What a year for our world as we sat witness to a number of epic events. 

The year was underlined with the devastating earthquake and tsunami in Japan. 

Revolutionary change in Egypt, Tunisia and Libya as the people of those countries demanded new leadership. 

The death of Osama bin Laden and the 10 year commemoration of 9/11 bringing together the end of one man's tyranny and the memorial of so many innocent lives lost. 

The 'Occupy' protestors giving voice to the discontentment Americans have only before quietly expressed.

The jubilation of the December 15th U.S. declaration that the war in Iraq was over to the somber memorials of some 460 innocent lives lost this year alone. 

The British Royal Wedding gave us brief pause as we watched the pageantry that could only be the royal wedding while back at home here in Alabama we began picking up the pieces following the devastating April Tornados that took place only days before. 

For the first time in more than a century both houses of the legislative branch of state government came under Republican control, we elected Robert Bentley as governor, dealt with a Bingo trial and enacted an Immigration law. 

As we enter 2012 our first order of business will be to cheer on the University of Alabama in hopes of bringing home to Alabama the BCS Championship for the third year in a row. 

We at WSFA 12 News thank you for sharing your valuable time with us over the past year and we wish you nothing but the best in 2012.

We appreciate and encourage your feedback.
