Spread holiday cheer this year – volunteer, donate, connect
Yuletide is a time of year for appreciation, generosity, kindness, magic, love, and all those other warm feeling moods. There are many ways to take part and I hope that you do. Regardless of your religious or political beliefs, this is a time of year in our American culture to embrace the diversity that makes America so special. Be kind to each other. Tolerate those that are different than yourself. Display affection and generosity, in whatever ways you are able to. Spread and share in the holiday spirit.
Below are some links to local ( Seattle area ) organizations and communities that reach out and help spread hope, kindness & cheer during the holiday season. The holidays are a great reminder that we are all part of this shared world, we all have joys and sorrows, success and failure stories….we all share some type of common ground.
The supreme court is hearing arguments for and against the idea of marriage equality, an idea that says same sex couples have the same rights granted by the constitution and straight couples do, hence the term marriage equality. The definition of what is marriage is being examined and defined. I always believed marriage was linked to love and commitment…..though I have been hearing some people say marriage was always about child rearing and nothing more. Well we live in a different era than when we needed to procreate to contribute here. The world is populated and i say let people be together for love, rather than only to bring children into the world. That is great if you want to do that, but we shouldn’t exclude people who chose not to, and if you are in love with someone and it is mutual, why shouldn’t you be allowed that joy of love. Support marriage equality between consenting adults.
