The Mayan Calender prediction of the world ending on 12/21/2012 did not happen. That means that Mayans will be busy last-minute Christmas shopping on 12/22/2012.
In my last post I talked about solidarity. Solidarity is all about building a stronger community. That community could be at your workplace, it could be your family, an organization you are a member of or the neighborhood where you live. In a perfect world solidarity would be in each of those places and more. I like the ambitious goals of the Occupy Movement to get 99% of the people to realize they should be in solidarity together to make this a better planet. In this Christmas season I am reminded of a time when Christian neighbors joined together in solidarity when they saw injustices happening to their Jewish neighbors. This and other such fights against bigotry happened a number of years ago when people stood up and said, “Not in My Town.” The following video is about that and it shows the kind of solidarity I believe Christmas should be about:
Happy holidays to you no matter what your holiday is!
