After it all is said and done, is it worth the discord and angst?
Is arguing with a stranger making the world a better place?
Does enforcement of ideological views or beliefs bring us closer together?
I ask these rhetorical questions not in vain.
I ask these honest questions because sometimes I see pain.
I dream of unity because we breathe the same air.
I dream of honest and open communication to clear the way.
I know these dreams are shared with billions of souls, some young and some old.
Wanting the best from ourselves and for our neighbors.
Humbly being the ones to reach out a helping hand to a stranger.
In the season of giving and receiving remember the true roots and meaning,
To gracefully illuminate the dark winter months with hope, love and faith for those who come after.
Be kind to yourself & others,
