A truly thoughtful gift

A friend of mine, knowing of my emotional state these days, brought me a truly thoughtful Christmas card.

What makes this so extraordinary is that he really does not understand why I am so distraught, so anxious and afraid, but wanted to let me know that he and his family were ready to help and, well, just be there. That was the real gift.

And it's what I must keep in mind and heart - people come first, politics second.

I take strength and comfort from a quote from the classic novel The Plague by Camus:

 "...what we learn in a time of pestilence: that there are more things to admire in men than to despise."

Here's wishing you PEACE FAMILY & FRIENDSHIP for the holidays and HOPE for the New Year.  Take care.
