(WTNH) — Every Friday, we look back at the last week through your eyes — your pictures, videos and story suggestions — in the Report-It Recap, but since this is the last Friday of 2014 we wanted to share a sneak preview of our special look back at the last year that will air this Saturday evening at 7:30 p.m. on News 8.
They are the moments, the images, and the stories that day-to-day, week-to-week, and month-to-month, make up our lives.
What stands out to you? What will you remember? That’s what we want to know. It’s what we’re requesting when we ask you to Report-It. We want to see what you see, when you see it.
Of course, that means the news that’s breaking around you. The fires in your neighborhood, and the crashes holding up your commute.
The winter snow storms that leave you digging out, and the summer storms that leave plenty of damage. You’re “first on the scene”, and when you Report-It, you become our eyes and our ears. You’re our first “reporter” on the scene.
But there’s more to life than news, or at least there’s a broader definition of the word. News is what’s happening, it’s what you’re talking about.
We are so fortunate you share them with us, one picture at a time, from breathtaking sunrise, to beautiful sunset. The smile of a child, the adorable face of a beloved pet. The way you spent your weekend, supporting a good cause. How you and your family celebrated a holiday.
Sometimes, life is predictable. We look forward to seeing the snowmen you build in the winter, and the pool parties you throw in the summer.
Sometimes it’s inspiring. From the little guy finally busting out of the hospital where he spent the first 465 days of his life, to the cancer survivor who opened a Crossfit gym.
And sometimes it catches us by surprise, like Mike’s elaborate prom proposal, or the time mega-star celebrity Taylor Swift drops by a coffee shop and poses for selfies.
They are the moments, the images, and the stories that day-to-day, week-to-week, and month-to-month, make up our lives, and we’re glad you share them with us.
