Merry Christmas, 2011
"And unto you a child is born." With that promise man was given the promise of a light unto all men, a light that will lead us to our salvation if only we choose to accept that path.
As 2011 ends we prepare to welcome in 2012 it would behoove us all to reflect on that promise. In fact, even if you are not the religious sort, even if you claim another religion or none at all, the path that Christ was born into this world to embark upon is for us all to learn from and is one worthy of study and acceptance. Christ's path is, indeed, a philosophy worthy of consideration for it is one based on service to your fellows, love for all, and a suppression of one's selfishness in order to pursue a higher calling.
What could be a better path, even for the non-religious among us?
So, as we celebrate this Christmas Day, the day meant to memorialize the birth of Christ, and as we head into 2012 let us all strive to work harder to be of service to our fellows. Let us engage in those random acts of kindness that makes everyone's lives so much more fulfilling -- not to mention easier. Let us remember to say thanks to those who have done something for us and let us offer our own works for others without expecting immediate repayment.
Let's try and leave this place a bit better off than when we came in.
