My Christmas Wish....

I have a lot to be thankful for. I enjoyed the turkey with all the trimmings just like most did. However, in the back of mind I kept thinking of what was going on in India. The terrorists and hostages and all those innocent lives that were turned upside down. It is hard to believe that there are people out there that want to do harm like this.

A little closer to home is what happened to a 34 year old Walmart employee this past Friday.....just because we wanted a good bargain. Is this what Americans have become? Is the true meaning of Christmas suppose to be about who can get the best deal? We TRAMPLED the guy...just to save a buck???

And another story locally that rips my heart out. A man beats his seven year old to death with a steel mop handle. His five year old survived the incident. He is a monster. I feel no remorse for him. How can anyone do this?

My Christmas wish is for those who have lost their family members in violence, abuse, or other unnecessary ways to find peace.

I know I am still trying to find it for them...
