This is the time of the year when we should not be opening presents; we should be opening our hearts. It’s a time for love and for hope. So let’s hope the violence and hatred that seem to define this country and large parts of the world are quelled and that people begin to realize that we are in this thing together, clinging to a planet that is under attack from human greed and self-interest, spinning in the infinitude of space — our only home. We owe it to our kids and their kids to take care of it and to listen to what others have to say while we put ourselves second to the well-being of the planet and all who share its dwindling resources.
Happy Holidays to my fellow-bloggers and the readers of this blog whose comments are always appreciated.
