Change Christmas to Eid, Hanukkah, or Diwali, and John to Ahmed, Eliezer, or Sanjay; play a few variations on America – and you’ve stated pretty much what all the world wants. Your wish is our wish as well. Thank you, John.

I also want engaged citizen, more than consumers. I want more love than fear. I want more compassion and generosity. I want to give of myself more than I receive. I want communities to embrace their differences and similarities to truly listen to and understand each other while savouring the complexities and challenges that true community brings when seeking both justice and peace.
Reblogged. John Tieman, this is superb. In essence: love and respect for all of humanity and the home we share. Why is this so difficult?
Magnificent comment, John. And Christmas teaches what we should be all year long.

All that you want for Christmas is a partnership between rights and responsibility. This should be the world’s Christmas list.
