The Year 2012 in Review
In my opinion the biggest story of the year 2012 was the super storm Hurricane sandy that devastated parts of NorthEast and woke people in that area up from slumber to think that their place is immune to hurricanes. People are still recovering from the devastation more than two months after hit them. Then in no particular order, there was the London Olympics with massive security done and the French elections, the socialists came back to power after defeating the ultra conservative there. Then came the U.S. elections, although it was thought the President Obama would not win because of the supposedly widespread discontent with this policies, he cruised to victory dashing the hopes of the Republican party for four more years. The funniest one of the events was the Mayan prediction of the end of the world on December 21, 2012. People literary gave away their savings, quit their jobs and huddled in underground bunkers to wait for end of the world. But since most of the people knew that it was just a big yawn, they ignored it and as usual nothing came out of it. Then the biggest tragedy that struck America after Hurricane sandy was the killing of 26 people including 20 elementary kids ages 6-7 without any fault by a deranged person who did not show any remorse while killing them. It was the most devastating act of killing by any individual in America in a very long time. This act alone set the tone for a sad ending to the Year 2012. Hopefully this year it will be much happier than last year.
