To the Journal editor:
Please would everyone consider making this week of Christmas to be one of peace, forgiveness and thankfulness. No criticism, hatred, vitriol or nastiness in speaking or writing at home, in the community or in the letters to the editor.
Instead, think of your blessings. Everyone has something. Do you have children, family, friends, shelter, food, clothes, transportation, a church where you have freedom to worship? There would be no holiday, no Christmas holiday if Jesus had not been born into this world. If you have no church, go to one to observe a Christmas celebration. You will be blessed.
Please if not the whole week, take one day, with prayers and Christmas blessings.
