Let there be peace on Earth, and let it begin with me. Say hello when you pass someone on a busy sidewalk. Open a door for a stranger whose hands are full. Drop some change in a Salvation Army red bucket on your way out of a store. Buy a Christmas tree at the BOGO tree lot in Mount Pleasant and help spread holiday cheer to a family in need. Be a secret Santa. Adopt a family. Bake fresh cookies and take coffee, lots of coffee, to your coworkers. Prepare warm food for someone who is alone. Give generously to your favorite charity. Gather with friends and family. Be present. Listen to someone with a different opinion at the dinner table and try to put yourself in their shoes, just for a minute. Be thankful. Sing and dance. Set goals for how you can make a difference in the new year. Be someone who brings comfort and joy and inspires hope. Enjoy a silent night. Pray for peace everywhere.
