It’s Christmastime, and expectedly, children across the world, are making wish lists for Santa.
Sadly, far too many children are not wishing for fire engines, Barbies, PlayStations, iPhones and bicycles.
Instead, all they are wishing for Christmas is a cure – a cure for cancer – and a dream fullfilled – to have their sisters and brothers, who cancer has stolen, back on Earth with them.
What are we earthly Santas to do?
How do we fulfill such lofty dreams and wishes?
We put down our personal lists that we’re checking more often than twice
and make time for a Celebration of Life –
a celebration of lifting children up –
lifting them closer to their loved ones
and lifting us all closer to a cure.
those wishing for miracles.
– Lift them up now –
so they may feel the magic of Christmas
wash over them.
