The Holidays: What Brings us together
During this holiday season I would like all of us to reflect on what one of the most important things of this season is. To bring people together. During this time of year there is a common tradition in my family that goes a little something like this: Mom, what do you want for Christmas? Then she says something to the effect of, "I want peace." Now this holds a lot of weight in our family, because then all of us kids feel an obligation to get along. Believe it or not, it actually works, and we all end up growing closer because of it. Now all you folks out there, what more could you ask for on Christmas than a household of people that all love each other and show it? So this season, instead of asking for presents and candy, instead focus on giving the gift of peace and love to those around you.
