|Yes, me in shorts in December. Eat your hearts out.|
I considered posting something to the challenge laid down by Princess Scooterpie, for I've had some wonderful Christmas pasts and some not so good. If you ever spent Christmas night eating Chinese food and going to a strip club for something to do, then you know loneliness.
Considering the events at Newtown, CT recently anything that I write seems to pale in consideration. I can't even begin to imagine the emptiness that the parents must be feeling. It's put a damper on the Holiday spirit here, and in a way has made the holiday all that more special as families will pull each other closer. The memories that will be created will be all that more special for those with small children, knowing that despite your best efforts...tragedy can happen in mere seconds.
If any good can come from this, it's knowledge that life really is a wonderful, precious and amazing thing. I'm lucky to live my life in peace. I only hope that those who lost loved ones recently - friends and family - can find some peace. Some hope in the coming days.
