At This Holiday Season

Photo Courtesy of Jeff SmithThis coming Holiday season has been marred with such dire happenings in our world today,

bringing about unbelievable shock and sympathy for victims that have

lost their lives and for those who have been treated in a most barbaric way.


Because in the minds of terrorists, goodwill toward men, women, and children do

not exist nor do they believe, in any season, that peace on earth should reign,

however, with an abundance of hope, faith, and prayer, this brutal attack

will cease, and end these atrocities that caused immeasurable human suffering and everlasting pain.

At this coming Holiday season, may the bright lights from Christmas trees from

everywhere and from the lights brilliantly burning from Menorahs, brighten all

paths that will lead to tranquility and peace throughout the world.
