New Year's Resolutions In 2015 - CNN iReport



In the 21st century, the concept of the continents drifting apart during Pangea is not a new theory any longer, when the principles of “tectonics” causing earthquakes around the Pacific Rim and the San Andreas Fault in California are still valid reasons for acts of God and disasters worldwide. In the New Year 2015, climate change makes the hottest deserts chill in winter, while snow blows on the sands of time; then global warming can cause the opposite weather changes to take place in the coldest places on Earth. The Great Lakes in the Midwest of the United States are the subject of attention now when the winter solstice is not freezing lake waters in the Chicagoland area yet. The distance between the Americas and other continents may be closer in the 21st century through time, space, and physical presence--in spite of Pangea.

The first day of the New Year 2015 is bright, sunny, and full of blue skies, optimism, and hope for good things to come. “One does not define Hope, one lives it.”

Now there are fifteen (15) New Year’s Resolutions to keep in mind, “more things to do and less time to accomplish all the tasks” for the whole new year. While I was mentally organizing 15 things to do this morning in twelve months, I realized that I have to be on task all year long. However, others just choose to do only one New Year’s Resolution in 2015: Follow Through The Goals Set For The Year 2015.

While I was celebrating another birthday anniversary, I got a Chinese fortune cookie which forecasted “Travels from nesting space will take you to a broader cultural horizon”. While I have been commuting from the western suburbs of Du Page County, East and West, I have certainly been exposed to a broader cultural horizon gazing at cross-cultural diversity, right in the Chicagoland area during last year 2014. The commuter’s journey across the Chicagoland area and the western suburbs of Du Page County include a cross-cultural section of the Illinois demographics population in urban and suburban settings.

The New Year 2015 brings to life a virtual Mobile Lifestyle through time, space, and physical presence, where commuting travel to and from spaces takes more effort, personal expense, financial operating expenses, and sacrifice of a stable environment.

Last year brought to life and relevance a “centennial crisis” to the one hundred year period between 1914 and 2014.

Life is not the way it used to be in my surroundings. People are not the same way they used to be around here, there, and everywhere.

Some persons are no longer where they used to be for the last twenty-two (22) years, since my Father, Mr. Roberto Hung purchased a Lombard historic bungalow at 502 South Westmore-Meyers Road and Washington Boulevard in District 5, near Saint Pius X Catholic Church and School, and the Illinois Secretary of State Jesse White Motor Vehicles License Facility at the Eastgate Shopping Center in the Village of Lombard, York Township, Du Page County, Illinois, USA.

In the year 2015, the Village of Lombard has not yet compensated me as a Lombard resident homeowner, Illinois Victim of Heinous Hate Crimes in the United States of America.

This New Year in 2015, the Lombard Scam For Homeowners Like Myself and My Father, Mr. Roberto Hung, Illinois Victims of Murder-For-Hire Conspiracy Has To Be Compensated By York Township and Du Page County, Illinois USA.
