Oh, Harry, I feel so defeated and discouraged this Christmas. Christmas has taken on such a dark, evil intent because it represents the self-proclaimed Christians who have denied every tenet of their faith by supporting a narcissistic, abhorrent president who is hell-bent on destroying our country. I’ve gone through the motions of this holiday for the sake of my grandchildren, hoping it will pass quickly, wondering if I should be more truthful with the children even if that truth robs them of magic and mystery.
I cannot find an ounce of joy in this season. For so long, Christmas has been a buying-fest with little connection to the compassion and simplicity it’s supposed to represent. And, now, it represents all the isms that corrode our society. My heart cannot celebrate that which has become so corrupt and despicable.
