Your Voice: Resolutions for 2012

The Voice-Tribune Reports

Ah, the new year. 2012.

This year, as with every other new year, comes the oft-dreaded New Year’s resolution.

As humans, we are entrenched in making promises at the dawn of the new year – and we’ve been doing this a long, long time.

Going back at least to 153 B.C., when an early Roman king named Janus is credited with using the new year to both ask forgiveness and look ahead to new victories.

In modern times, we use the new year to try and change the things we don’t like about ourselves.

From losing weight to getting in shape to drinking less to, well, you name it and there’s a resolution for it.

The Voice-Tribune set out on a mission to see what Louisvillians were resolving to change about themselves (or others) during 2012.
