I only want one thing for Christmas.

And I know it is possible.

To live in a world where our propensity to care for each other overtakes our fear of losing what we hold dear.

I know it is possible, because I have seen this world.

It wasn't that long ago when we lived our love,

Not our fear.

We can do it again.

We simply have to make that choice.

Its just compassion and the gift of human kindness.

To get it, all I have to do is give it away.

I will.
