As we go to invest in what we have been given, let's remember what we have been given. A world of threatened beauty, each other evermore distant, economic inequality, and hope. So now that Christmas is over: give a gift to everyone! Give your time to each other and the planet; call someone instead of texting; sit down with someone you would normally pass by; pick up a piece of litter. Every day is a day to be a little closer to your community and your family, nuclear or communal.
