If you watch the TV commercials, Christmas looks like a miracle of stuff.
If you watch the holiday specials, Christmas seems sparkly and beautiful.
If you watch the news, Christmas seems like a nightmare.
There are many wonderful things happening right now: families coming together, random acts of kindness, charitable giving, religious services.
But there are so many broken and desperate people out there. The holidays can make life even worse for them.
Please keep a watchful eye and an open heart for those in need.
