Your Fresh Start for 2011

As the end of the year approaches, many of you may be sitting by the lava lamp and writing down your resolutions for the new year: 

Do you plan to get back into your "skinny jeans"? 

Be more plugged in to social media... or less? 

Quit smoking once and for all? 

Manage stress better? 

Drink less alcohol?

Make more time for your family, friends, loved ones? 

Finally go after that master's degree you've been putting off? 

Make a barbeque recipe to rival Uncle Jack's secret sauce?

Hone on your DIY skills to become a "Mister or Miss Fix-it"?   

As you reflect on the days that have passed in 2010, and set the bar high for yourself, share your plans with us. 

We want to hear not only what your goals are, but what your game plan is for achieving them. 

How do you plan to keep the goal in mind, and not have it dissolve at the first whiff of a hot Krispy Kreme donut?
We'd like to help. 

Your project could become the focus of a CNN Newsroom segment, complete with expert advice, and planning tips to help you and those inspired by you... to succeed.

So rather than spend the next 12 months ruminating about what you didn't achieve last year...  plug-in and prepare for a fresh start and share your plan with CNN Newsroom.

Slave Trade Sculptures: Art to remember the past

Twenty-seven year-old artist, Stephen Hayes, in Atlanta, just learned about the how slaves were brought from Africa to the U.S. He was stunned.

He never learned about the Brookes slave ship plan in all his years of schooling. He had no idea slaves were packed as tightly as possible in the ships, and sick "cargo" were simply tossed out to the Atlantic. This horrified him and he wanted to share this story with others because he was never told about this part of U.S. history.

For five months he worked tirelessly to create a stunning piece of artwork: 15 life size statues of former slaves, to represent 15 million slaves that were transported to the New World. He hopes his art will start a dialogue about our past and inspire us to change the present and future.

Hayes says slavery exists today: in sweatshops in under developed countries.
