Ho! Ho! Ho! Everyone.
Time is slowly ticking by and will not stop. As it gets closer to Christmas the opportunity to make a difference is quickly passing us by.
One of the things that always interests me about Christmas is gift giving.
Of course, you say!! You're Santa!! You know all about that!!
Yes, that is true but the thing that interests me is not the gift but rather the giver and the receiver.
Invariably those who are most well off receive the most either as most valuable or in quantity. Those who are poor receive things that others may be insulted by or even refuse. The castoffs of merchandise go to the castoffs of society. I could say that like attracts like but this is hardly true.
Those with the least need receive the most whilst those with the most need receive the least. Some may say that this is just the reality of life and that the poor should get off their backsides and do something to change their situation. Easily said by those who have never experienced homelessness or living in abject poverty. Easily ignored by those who have a clean crisp bed to sleep in every night. Easily forgotten by those who do not have to scrounge for scraps and the few morsels of food that they actually do get to consume maybe every other day.
Are we so blind that we can ignore the plight of those in need?
I know. As Christmas gets closer we'll do something. We'll do it tomorrow. Tomorrow never comes. Ever!!
