Please take a moment to offer a prayer to whomever you pray to for the people of Paris.
It seems rather trite to talk about the perfect container to store your Christmas bows and baubles in, in the wake of all the uproar.
So how about this. Your homework this week, in preparation for the upcoming holiday season, a season in which many will now be without their loved ones, is to take that priority list you made last week, and put "family and friends" at the very top.
Tonight, I want you to gather your little ones a bit closer. Clasp the hand of your partner and love. Call your Aunt you haven't seen in a while.
From what I can tell, the point of all of the upcoming holidays, regardless of tradition, is love, thankfulness and togetherness. Be the change you want to see in the world.
