All we should need, or want for Christmas are the gifts of tolerance, love, and consideration.
Everyone would agree these are core principles of humanity. The right of all people to express their individual beliefs, feelings, or traditions which may be different from our own.
Schools, government, public services and the military have all practiced intolerance when they prevent the free expression of faith and beliefs, or the right to practice whatever lifestyle one chooses, as long as they are not hurting others.
What message are we sending to our children by limiting the ability to publicly post symbols of Christmas, a Kinara or a Crescent and a five-pointed star, a Menorah or any other messages?
Not everyone participates or observes Christmas. This is an individual choice. Some celebrate Christmas with traditional customs, while others follow different beliefs, or avoid it altogether.
Let's resolve to live in harmony, to seek unity once again and learn to coexist in a peaceful planet.
