Happy New Year Philadelphia!

"Produce great Persons, the rest follows." -- Walt Whitman, Leaves of Grass, By Blue Ontario's Shore​ 3

Here are the resolutions for the city of Philadelphia in 2016:

We WILL:

  • ​dispose of our trash properly

  • speak like ladies and gentlemen in public places

  • give up our seats to elderly or women with young children

  • hold doors open for those behind us

  • say "good morning" and "thank you" to each other

  • condemn the sin, but not the sinner

  • show mercy and forgiveness to one another​

  • look for and ask for help when we need it

  • help others when we see that they need help

  • endeavor to live and eat healthy

  • try to challenge our boundaries by being friendly with people whom we wouldn't normally think to be friendly with

  • hold our families, friends, and neighbors to task if they talk or act in ways unbecoming of a good Philadelphian

  • continue to grow and prosper, in ways that are positive and productive, for ourselves and for the city

We will NOT:

  • dispose of our trash in the streets

  • use foul or obscene language in public places

  • judge others who disagree with us

  • use violence or threats as a way of dealing with our problems

  • talk or act like adolescents, for those of us who are grown adults

  • elect or support corrupt individuals in public office

  • give up on the Eagles, Sixers, Phillies, or Flyers
