Be Kind to One Another

3WW: hardship; echo;softly.

Is Christmas a hardship or a pleasure?  Can it be one, the other, or both?

As snow falls softly and Christmas Bells echo, be kind to one another.

***

Just Thinking–

Is mental health

Or behavioral health

What we need to address

In a new and better way?

Is it gun control

Or impulse control

That causes the problems

We experience today?

When the more violent the game

The greater the fame,

Is what we are taught,

And is every day play,

And what we watch on TV

Is filled with brutality

How can we not,

Be led astray?

Something is wrong

When innocence gone

Doesn’t make us see

The price we pay.

Please open our minds

To ideas—all kinds

And let us make tomorrow

A better day.

****

More  thoughts–

We must teach our youth

The elemental truth

That violence

Is not the way.

Frustration and anger,

Hurt and pain are a danger

And the lure of fame

Can lead them astray.

Many hearts are broken,

Broken wide open

With a crevice

That won’t go away.

  1. Wow that was strange. I just wrote an really long comment but after I clicked submit my comment didn’t show up. Grrrr… well I’m not writing
    all that over again. Anyways, just wanted to say superb blog!

  2. we should always be kind to one another

  3. great ideas that need to be put in place.

  4. Christmas is indeed a hardship and a pleasure.

    Your other words are heart-felt. We are a violent society. Ready access to guns makes incidents like the one we just had easy.
    It will certainly be a hardship for those who have lost their children.

    Peace,

  5. Ps I just realised its what Ellen says at the end of her show.. 🙂

  6. It’s definitely a time of both I think – maybe pressure is increased as we are bombarded with ideas of what is normal..what we should be feeling..that perhaps is unachievable on any day..feeling ‘ok’ inside must be a start towards a better day..Jae
