Hidden in Plain Sight.
Winter has set upon us as the holidays draw near.
Every year gone by represents a time of wonder and quiet reflection. As is the custom, this season will be marked with festive gatherings of families and friends.
But for some citizens in our great society, these days are filled with darkness. We pass by them everyday, pretending they are not us. Yet they live on, cast offs of a family no longer seen. Like lost souls having fallen from grace, these individuals become broken and destitute, often existing without aid.
We have listened as politicians invoke the Judeo-Christian ethic, promising the moon in exchange for a vote. As a new Congress prepares to be seated, we should demand they create lasting policy aimed at helping all the less fortunate living among us. This is what any righteous society would do.
