A Christmas Cartoon

While this Holiday Season of 2012 will forever bear the unspeakable pain of the loss of those beautiful, innocent children and teachers in Newtown, Connecticut, there remains the hope of better tomorrows. One thing we must credit ourselves with as a species is our unflagging energy in improving the world around us in the wake of tragedy. I’m confident that somehow, we will learn from this and take measures to prevent its recurrance. I suspect there will be no easy, simple answer – my own opinion is that the problem is multi-faceted and needs to be a matter of addressing the disease rather than treating the symptoms, but whatever the case, my confidence in our ability to rise from the ashes of tragic loss is entirely intact.

While levity or humor may, to some, seem innappropriate during this time, it’s my belief that its curative effects shouldn’t be entirely dismissed or discounted. I offer this Christmas cartoon in the hopes of restoring happiness, in some minor and momentary way, in this, the saddest of times. God Bless all, most especially the children.
