On this Christmas Eve...

Good Day World!

*Americans are wrapping gifts from an imaginary saint to give to good little boys and girls;

*Company Christmas parties are being celebrated from coast-to-coast, with spirits that have nothing to do with Charles Dicken's ghosts from A Christmas Carol;

*Blaring Christmas music is playing in stores that have decided to stay open late, hoping for a Christmas miracle of last minute shoppers desperately buying everything still on their shelves;

*Millions of Americans are going to churches today to pray for peace and love throughout the land;

*Millions of homeless Americans are wondering where their next meal is coming from and where they can take shelter on a winter's night, like Mary and Joseph on Christmas Eve.

After 69-years, I can still conjure up the magic of Christmas Eve when I was young and believed in miracles. When my brother, two sisters, and I, sat up late hoping to see Santa Claus with a sack of endless gifts.

Time for me to walk on down the road...
