All the media tell us that this is time of year to be Merry and Jolly. Happiness guaranteed! Anybody seen anyone in a Xmas advert who is sad? Thought not!
So, at this time of year, let’s also remember and help the thousands and thousands of those who are homeless.
The millions of lonely people who may not even see someone, let alone talk to someone, on Xmas day.
And the millions with mental health issues who view the ‘happiness’ as something that is passing them by.
And those who have lost loved ones, those that who have fallen ill and who are in hospital – and those whose have no immediate families to share the day with.
“My idea of Christmas, whether old fashioned or modern, is very simple: loving others. Come to think of it, why do we have to wait for Christmas to do that?”
