It's ironic how there are dozens of movies about Scrooge out there. And of course the book "A Christmas Carol" by the great Charles Dickens.

Through all of these years, you would think that message would have struck a chord with everyone by now. It saddens me so deeply that things seem to be only getting worse.

With all of the messages of love, peace and good will that have been shared throughout the years, how on earth can we be where we are today, with all of the greed, hate, cruelty, bullying and misery. What will it take for all of us to see each other as human beings regardless of color, religion, the thickness of one's wallet, or who they fall in love with?

If your God wanted us all to be the same, then why create us different? If you believe your God created us all in his image, then who are you to judge what your God created?

Let's stop being hypocrites. Think about it. May peace love and happiness find you all.
