However, on the other side of the world, thousands of people are leaving their homes after a volcano erupted in eastern El Salvador, that's south of Mexico (I had to look it up).
The Salvadoran government detected increased activity inside the volcano, and has been monitoring the situation since 13 December amongst the 20 volcanoes in the small Central American nation.
So many people around the world are displaced and suffering right now because of natural disasters and conflict among the people. Today's news reveals thousands of children are likely to have been separated from their families as a result of the latest violence in South Sudan. Children are our future. I hope the people who care for them are kind.
I'm setting up a blog for 2014: http://511580395457358476.weebly.com
I'll continue my daily views on news there next year. Hope you stay with me. I appreciate your support.
