Inside the Chamber – December 2012

Branville McCartney of Halsbury Law Chambers - PartnerAs we come to the close of 2012, we take time to reflect on the past year. A year that for most was extremely difficult. The continued depressed state of the economy, crime and the fear of crime in our beloved country and the many social ills that continue to plague our nation have caused us to wonder if things will get better! We remember those who have departed this earth and those who are ill, the homeless and persons who can’t find food to feed their families. We think about the unrest in other nations and indeed the recent massacre in Connecticut. Celebrating and rejoicing seem to be the furthest things from ones mind!! In light of this however, I think it is important that during this time we remember the real reason for the season…that is the birth of Christ who came to bear our burdens. For that reason alone, we should celebrate. Celebrate not necessarily by buying gifts, going to parties or cooking a huge meal. But celebrate in a way that we help our fellow man…that is by giving to those who are less fortunate and spending time with your family and friends. No doubt this should happen not only during this Christmas season but throughout the year. We ought to reflect on the good and on our blessings and looking forward to our best year ever! My youngest daughter said to my wife and me at the dinner table two weeks ago that for her Christmas present, she wants us to spend time together as a family. That’s all. My daughter is 10 years old and she will get her Christmas wish!

On behalf of my Partners, Associates, Management and Staff I would like to wish each and every one of you a Very Merry Christmas and a Safe, Healthy, Prosperous and Happy New Year!
