I said some words to the close and holy darkness, and then I slept
Merry Christmas, treasured readers. If you’re reading this blog, it’s painfully apparent to all with eyes to see that you’ve been good boys and girls this year, so I won’t even bother asking if Santa treated you well. Of course he did!
Hopefully you’re all enjoying the day with your families and gifts and Christmas hams and whatnot. Unfortunately, that’s not the case for everyone. There are presently thousands of American soldiers, either in combat in Iraq or Afghanistan, or stationed elsewhere overseas, who can’t enjoy the holidays with their families. This isn’t a guilt trip, obviously, just a call for all of us to reflect on how blessed we are, and if that’s your type of thing, maybe offer up some words to the close and holy darkness for our soldiers and their families.
I also promised my friend Sam that I would pass along this request while you guys are still drunk on holiday cheer and good will. She works for Americorps for like, sweatshop wages, and is in charge of recruiting volunteers for the Phipps Volunteer Tutor Project. So if you live in NYC, and you’re interested in helping out some underprivileged kids, I’d advise you to check out that link. And also, merry Christmas!
