Share the Spirit

Last night we visited the Menorah and Christmas tree on the Washington mall.The night was cold and crisp and the season’s spirit was so tangible. At that moment I felt such an overwhelming sensation of peace and wished that everyone in the world could experience it. Yet I know that conflict, pain and human suffering continues unabated all over the world. I have no wand to alleviate all that pain but today like every day I will have small opportunities to bring the peace of the season to others. It may be merely a smile ,or holding open a door or helping someone with their groceries. There will be available toy drives and the soup kitchen will enable me to bring at least temporary shelter and food. Yes the spirit was not meant to be merely savored but rather to be shared.
