It’s very hard to come up with some Christmas spirit when the world is in chaos. Greed, violence, and corruption are the keys of the days we live in, with no end in sight. Lies and loss of what this country was founded on are only keeping fear as the reigning essence we are living with. Hearts have grown cold, people are too self involved, the light of love has gone dim, and this saddens me greatly. Where is the warmth that is human nature? Why can’t we all just give our fellow-man a smile with a kind word, in peace, compassion, and tolerance? Life is short, and can be so rich and full but today it’s all filled with hate and fear.
