There is something very special that happens during the month of December. As we count down the days until December 25, people seem to act nicer.

People spend more time doing kind acts. Wishes of hope and love abound.

Sure there are also instances of violence, and ugliness…but kindness and love seems to fill peoples thoughts.

Now the it it is December 26th the only thought I have is this: How long will it take until we start throwing the poison around again..

The view of a pessimist.

The view of a cynic.

The view of a pain in the ass.

I admit to being all of those. I also admit to being a realist. With all of the negativity that has been running through the hearts and minds of people, I can only believe that that flow can only be stemmed for a short period of time.

And that is sad.

We can only care for, accept, and show concern for one another for a short period of time.

What does that say about us?

Where is that love the rest of the year?
