Christmas Gift From 100 Years Ago... Joyeux Noel

Wishing you a Merry Christmas, Joyeux Noel, Buon Natale, Feliz Navidad, Happy Hanukkah
and whatever holiday you may be celebrating around this time.

I just wanted to remind you of something extraordinary that happened 100 years ago...
On Christmas Eve in 1914 during World War 1, the Germans, French and Scottish soldiers on the front-line called an informal and unauthorised truce - with the other men, who they'd tried to kill every day because they were the 'enemy'.

So whilst the News, media and politicians try to shape your mind into seeing differences and being afraid - remember to take the time to remember your similarity to 'others', your fellow humans.

“Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.”

Most of the time that battle is not visible on a battlefield but inside.  So don't judge others as you don't know what they've been through.

Wishing you hope, kindness, understanding and peace for 2015.

Best Wishes,
Bobby :-)
