family xmas a time to be together

Christmas is a time to be with your loved ones, whether that’s family, friends, pets. But it is also a time we should think about those less fortunate, those in the armed forces in distant lands separated from their families. They put their lives at risk so we may enjoy our freedom that they protect. It is unfortunate that in the 21st century countries must maintain an armed force, but boundaries have changed, it is not the countries or governments that war with one another but misguided idealism. It is ironic that religion can create the happiest memories through seasonal festivities such as Christmas, great sadness from extreme ideology and hope, support through pray and belief.

One day we may all be able to enjoy Christmas at the same time, maybe not together but maybe in peace, with respect for each other.
