THE DARK SIDE OF CHRISTMAS

Dec 2nd, 2011 | By Dr Jerry D Elrod | Category: Senior Moments Blog

The ghastly darkness of the season now invades us all. Pepper spray and the collapse of a shopper, while others go about their merry and indifferent way, as he lies there amidst the tinsel and garland and grasping hands, now haunts us all. They might have turned off the lights and announced the store was closing, for Christmas was, at that moment, really no more. It had ended, if it had ever really started.

And, if it had, it had surely got off to very bad and terrible start. If this were to be Christmas, 2011, something was terribly wrong. If it has been reduced to such ravenous appetites, filled only by the accomplished desire of getting what I want, then the season is little worth having or remembering or commemorating.
