Everyone in Israel is talking about former President Shimon Peres’ passing. Some of the best quotes attributed to him include, “Dream big!” and “The best thing that I accomplished for the State of Israel is what I will do tomorrow.” He was always thinking about what else could be done to serve others; he never just sat back and rested on his laurels. I think that is a good message for the New Year as well — in the words of Shimon Peres, we should always be more open to the future than tied to the past.
