Pondering the Origins of "Re"

Lately I have been pondering these two little letters of the alphabet.  What an incredibly powerful pair they make together.  re” holds such potential!  such strength! 
Think how the addition of this pair of letters alters the meaning of so many words.   Recycle, reuse, repurpose, renew…each of these implies a new beginning.  
And...what is the new year all about?—resolutions!   
To review, reinvent,  to reset or refresh or renew…provides a sense of a “do-over”. 
To begin again.  Have you ever wished there was a do-over button in life?
