I asked my ten-year-old grandson what he wanted for Christmas. His dimples deepened in thought, and his reply was, “Nana, I have no idea! I have everything now and don’t need anything more.” And then he looked me in the eye and said, “I’d really like world peace.”
I wanted to hug his little self and not let go, but we were in a hockey arena and ten-year-old hockey players have an image to keep up.
When a child of that age realizes how cruel our world is becoming, and wants world peace over toys and technology, how do we fulfill a Christmas wish like that?
Does Santa have world peace in his sack?
