There are no ‘O’s in Christmas. Whether one is Christian or no, it is the season of birth and renewal. I could have ignored the prompt entirely, but the damage was already done when I read the prompt in my email. To present such a negative impact in a season of life and giving is an insult to my good sense. People do die in December; even on Christmas itself; however true, why inflict those memories on people who might already be struggling to find the good cheer and high spirits that commemorate the season? Cruelty? Insensitivity? I can’t even imagine the thought or lack of thought that went into this blog prompt. Some of us will be celebrating Christmas and the New Year without that special person that made everyone laugh and find the goodness in living. For those souls who are missing their loved one, I cry as I write this. I will say no more.
