New Year's Resolutions: Making Them, Keeping Them & Having Hopes and Goals in Difficult Times
The 7 pm rebroadcast of this program will be pre-empted due to special NPR coverage of protests at the Capitol in Washington, D.C., over certification of the Presidential election.
With the challenges of 2020 behind us, we look at how different people set goals for the year ahead. We’ll hear from our listeners and some well-known Mainers about their 2021 resolutions. We’ll also talk about why people make or break resolutions, and the role of hope and aspirations, especially during difficult times.
