Christmas is a very special time of year. It is a time for reflection, forgiveness, rejoicing, giving and receiving. It is a time when we look at our own humanity and quietly look forward to the future. Whatever religion, race, culture or view you have, we need this time, set at the tailend of the year, to understand where we are in the whole epoch of the world. Some look at the events around the world and despair at our need to cause destruction. Ultimately though, we need to look back, rejoice, and move forward optimistically in the unknown that is the new year 2017.
PS Had a PD James book. Very pleased.
