Whoever you are, whatever your beliefs, whatever is your situation, I wish every single one of you happiness and good health this Holiday Season, and beyond!

Please don’t forget to notice those who’ve fallen on hard times — the less fortunate amongst us — and don’t allow them to become the invisible.  Please help them in anyway you can.

And don’t let any party or politician destroy your sense of hope for a better world.  Change has never come easily.

Here’s to a better year!

The original Band Aid perform their fabulous hit from the early 80s:  ‘Do They Know It’s Christmas Time?’  Enjoy!
