The Spirit of Togetherness

The Nativity

“At Christmas, I am always struck by how the spirit of togetherness
lies, also, at the heart of the Christmas story.
A young mother and a dutiful father with their baby
were joined by poor shepherds and visitors from afar.
They came with their gifts to worship the Christ child.”
~ Elizabeth II,
Queen of the United Kingdom
& the other Commonwealth realms,
Longest-Reigning Queen Regnant in History &,
Longest-Reigning British Monarch

Friends, Family, Good Health & Louboutins

“At Thanksgiving, I always start at the top of my list

Then, I get more superficial… like being thankful for my Louboutins.”

Calmer, Happier & Alert

“Sleep makes people calmer, more alert, less fearful – just plain happier,
or so I see around me and in me. I am sure that if this great nation were to concentrate on
getting more sleep, we would be a happier, more confident people,
and that by itself would be a major achievement.

Showing the Real Pictures

“Maybe we should always show pictures.
…, pictures of our wounded service people,
pictures of maimed innocent civilians.
We can only make decisions about war if we see what war actually is —
and not as a video game where bodies quickly disappear
leaving behind a shiny gold coin.”
