What is on your letter to Santa?

Living where we do and when we do, most of us lack for nothing.

I have family, friends, a home, an education, pets, health.  However, I am keenly aware that many, many people around the world, and in the US, lack homes, food, education, jobs, opportunities, basic sanitation and safety.  So, my list for Christmas and the New Year is:



  1. Jobs for those who need one


  2. Shelter for the homeless


  3. Nutritious meals for the hungry


  4. Health care for all, including mental health care


  5. Safety for those who are abused:  women, children, the disabled and elderly, and yes, the animals who are abused, fearful, and neglected


  6. Warm, clean clothes for the needy


  7. A toy for every child


  8. A friend or a pet for the lonely


  9. Education for all in the arts, sciences, history, math, wise living.


  10.  Elected officials who work for the good of the People


  11. A spirit of cooperation in congress and all nations  


  12. Acceptance of differences


  13. Stewardship of the land, air, water, and all resources


  14. Gratitude to those people and animlals who protect


  15. Gratitude to those people and animals who tend the sick and  frail


  16. Gratitude to those who grow, tend, and harvest food


  17. Gratitude to animals who give their lives that we may eat


  18. Gratitude to those who clean our homes, yards, offices, schools,hospitals


  19. Gratitude to those who forgive and who work toward reconciliation


  20. Gratitude to those who build and maintain buildings, transportation systems, sanitary and water systems


  21. Gratitude to parents who raise kind, responsible adults who will create Peace on Earth…




 May we all as individuals and as citizens of the world exemplify the Meaning of the Season.
