What Matters at Christmas
I'm not able to say anything eloquent about the events of the past few days, but I can say that it has made an impact on me. As I watch and read, I see that others share my feelings and want to act on them rather than sitting on them as we have in the past.
As I try to articulate my thoughts, the families here in Portland and in Newtown have lost loved ones before Christmas. I hope that they can find peace.
The outrage over senseless loss of life, is now settling into the realization that we are not guaranteed a long life, passing in our sleep with loved ones around us. So I want to take the time to tell my family and friends how much you matter to me.
