Happy and Merry Christmas

I have listened to some very good speeches recently related to Christmas.  I asked many what does Christmas mean to others?  I got a variety of responses.  To me, to remember what Christmas is all about,  I merely remember the first five letters of the word.  Christ.   Is that not what Christmas represents? 

Regardless, for the holiday season, I once again want to repost here Desirada.  This is for all of us children of the universe.  Peace.


Go placidly amid the noise and the haste,
and remember what peace there may be in silence.

As far as possible without surrender, be on good terms with all persons.

Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even to the dull and ignorant; they too have their story.

Avoid loud and aggressive persons; they are vexations to the spirit.

If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain or bitter; for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.

Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans. Keep interested in your own career, however humble;
it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.

Exercise caution in your business affairs; for the world is full of trickery.

But let not this not blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals; and everywhere life is full of heroism.

Be yourself. Especially, do not feign affection.

Neither be cynical about love; for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment it is as perennial as the grass.

Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth.

Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings.

Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.

Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself.

You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here.

And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be.

And whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life, keep peace with your soul.

With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world.

Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.

And finally, let there peace across this wonderful planet of ours and good will among all mankind. 
May we move forward united; instead of divided.

And merely remember if we all raise our hands and proclaim proudly, "I too am an American, by my birth; or by my lawful status; and if we all do so, then we are all united by that common right."

And if most of do, we are united as one people and proud to state:

I am an American fortunate to live in the United States of America. We are united; not divided.

Finally, with all other people across the world, we have one thing in common-we are united by the mere fact we are humans.  We all that right to be here.  As written in Desirada.  And that one fact, unites us across this world of ours.
That is my prayer.  So help me God. Merry Christmas, Feliz Navidad. May there be peace on earth among all of us.

My humble and simple wish for Christmas is merely for all of you, and your loved ones, to have a Merry and Peaceful Christmas. All across the United States of America; as well as across this entire universe of ours, regardless of your geographic or geopolitical coordinates.

Like Spock stated on Star Trek long ago: "Live Long and Prosper."

And all of us merely need to remember the Serenity Pray.

Anyone that would like to post solutions to make America a better nation as a guest blog author; or has solutions to fix some of the problems in America, send me an essay to Also known as Thomas E. Scherer, your better candidate for United States Congress

Merely remember if I am elected to Congress, you the individual are my boss. PACS, Lobbyists and Special Interest Groups, sorry, but just go away. Americans are tired of the United PACS of America buying and corrupting our congressman and Senators. Our candidate is not for sale.
