Buried Relics

 

The holidays are here and with it a storm of emotions.

Joy, anticipation, dread, and resentment all in the same room mixed with a warm and fuzzy expectation.

For some, it is a time to celebrate.

For others, sadness and anger dominates.

And yet, regardless of our buried relics, this season demands a cease fire.

Patience in the face of indignation.

Understanding in place of incredulity.

Kindness over judgement.

Because on Christmas of 1914, even the Germans and the British ascended their trenches to sing Christmas carols.

And if they can, so can we.
