Christmas Greetings - with update
If Christmas is the celebration of the human heart, then let our hearts beat together for peace. We stand at a terrible time in history. The "elected" leaders of America are cynical despots, bent on World domination. They are men with black hearts, whose actions are fueled with hate.
But our hearts are open, and geared toward peace. The road to peace is not black and white. It is paved with tolerance, love, understanding, open minds, and nuance. The road to peace is paved with acceptance, and it is not a smooth road at all. The road to peace is not narrow, nor is is paved with idiology, and it is an open road.
We can work together, and we can be strong. We can be the change we want to see in the world. We can, and we must, and we will, and we must not give up. What do we do? We continue to demand the impeachment of war criminals. We act to reverse the destruction of our planet. We open our hearts, we do with less stuff, we give of our souls, we love. And, as important, we laugh.
So my Christmas gift to you: I wish you trust, love, tolerance, joy, laughter, and good health. I am delighted that you are part of my world, because you also give me hope. War is over, if you want it.
I just made a total elf out of Beanie.
