As Christmas approaches a lot of good stuff appears on the internet.
Well, a lot of crappy stuff does too.
Some of you are on Facebook. Here's a graphic where you might find yourself.
Here are a couple of videos that I wouldn't have seen if not for the internet. The first one is "A Social Network Christmas," produced by Igniter Media and portrays how the Christmas story might have played out on Facebook, had it been around back then. Very creative.
Many of us have suffered loss during the past few months. The holiday season is known for being difficult for people who have lost a loved one. My family is dealing with this right now.
Remember the news reports of gay teens taking their own lives after being bullied or harassed that were so prevalent earlier this year? Such deaths are still going on, but the media has tired of that story I guess. But each of those kids represents a family that was shocked to find that their love one was so distraught that they saw no way out. Those families are dealing with the memories and the guilt, and the absence of their loved one right now. Let's not forget that Christmas can be a horrible time for some who previously thought it was the best day of the year.
LeAnn Rimes joined the Gay Men's Chorus of Los Angeles last week, and honored those young people who are no longer with us with this song.
Be nice this Christmas. And be strong.
