Peace On Earth

This time of year sees a myriad of holidays, all supposedly touting peace on earth, friendship among mankind, hope rekindled. A time for lights and good food, gifts and good cheer.

Yet, again this year. what I see and what I hear doesn’t really match the ideal. A far cry from it, in fact. There are wars going on…. and children trapped in war zones. There are people working their asses off, who still don’t have a place to call home, or enough to eat, or warm clothes. The animal shelters are filled with unwanted, mistreated companion animals who also just want a good home and loving family. People are in such a damn hurry, they have no tolerance for those who don’t move as fast as they want to…and think it is fine to vent their anger with violence. With the mess from this year’s Presidential election still rearing it’s ugly head, and hatred and bigotry alive and well, I wonder how close we could ever get to the ideal of the season.
