Whatever be the colour of your eye,
Whatever be the colour of your hair,
Whatever position you occupy,
Whatever religion you might declare,
Whatever be the colour of your skin,
Whatever be your political thought,
Virtue be in your heart, or deadly sin,
Whether you have treasures, or possess nought,
In this Festive Season please turn your face
Towards a stranger and hold out your hand,
Offer him, or her a friendly embrace
And try to make him, or her understand,
That we are all of the same family.
There is no place for violence, or hate,
There is no need for quarrel, or enmity,
That a just, peaceful world we must create
And we must learn to live in harmony,
Putting behind us all our bloody past,
Securing safety for our progeny,
For them to live on Earth in peace at last.

To all my “silent” readers I send my heartfelt thanks for reading my work.
Whoever you are I am truly grateful for your interest in my writing.
I sincerely hope that you get some pleasure, entertainment and perhaps even some intangible “value” out of reading my humble work.
For all the visitors and fellow Authors who read my work and leave comments,
please accept my grateful thanks, combined with my humble apologies for not responding promptly. Your generous support is more than appreciated.
I have a long standing and ongoing health problem in the family that takes absolute priority over everything else and occupies most of my time, preventing me to visit Authorsden regularly and spending more than a few minutes here at any time.
For the Festive Season I wish you all the very best, with Good Health, Happiness, success and prosperity.
May you all enjoy the Festive Season in Peace and Harmony.
