Today being the last day of 2008, millions across the world will tonight join in a massive outpouring to give the outgoing year a rousing sendoff.

With the passing of one year there naturally comes the opportunity for all to reflect, commit to renewal and step into the future with a burst of replenished energy.

The beckoning of the new year invariably fills us with hope for prosperity, peace and the strengthening of the bond of human fellowship.

When ushering in 2009 we should find inspiration in former United States president Lyndon B Johnson's timeless words: "Yesterday is not ours to recover but tomorrow is ours to win or lose."
