Predictions for 2017

2016 is coming to an end, and what is a new year without predictions? 2016 wasn’t the greatest year. We had many tragedies and the election ruined a lot of relationships. Hopefully, 2017 will be the year for rebuilding. 2017 could be the year that people restore relationships from all of the feuding and maybe there will be more helping than fighting.

2017 is going to be a different year for politics and our government. Our president-elect, Donald Trump, is a republican. Our country had more of the democratic views when Obama was president, and now we have the polar opposite. This could go one of two ways. One way, Donald Trump could use his views and change our country for the better and “make America great again”, or he could act too harshly and quickly on desicions. Hopefully, things will turn out better for the USA.

2017 could be a great year for movies. Some new movies that are coming out are Beauty and the Beast, starring Emma Watson, Wonder Woman, the second movie for Guardians of the Galaxy, Spiderman, and many more films. These movies are big, so you will probably see a lot more people at the movie theater. Also, hopefully, JK Rowling will make more Harry Potter books and movies, because Fantastic Beasts was a great one!

Music will be big for 2017. The Grammy’s coming up will be an interesting one, because so many artists had released their albums this year, such as Beyoncé, Adele, Bruno Mars, Rihanna, Justin Bieber and many more. The Grammy’s award, Album of the Year, could come down to Beyoncé or Adele. Beyoncé’s album, Lemonade, has about 1 million copies sold. Adele’s album, 25, has about 7 million copies sold in the USA. Even though Adele has more copies sold, Beyoncé could have a chance of getting the Grammy. Now its up to the voters!

Overall, I think 2017 will be a much better year than 2016. 2016 was one of those years that you just want to forget about. At least there was one good thing that happened this year and that was that Leonardo DiCaprio finally won an Oscar, for his stellar work in The Revenant. But, hopefully, people can learn more from 2016 and start to make real changes in the world in the upcoming year ahead of us.
