A Gift You Give Yourself, and to All Humanity

There is one gift you can give this Christmas that will cost you nothing but mean the world to yourself, your family, your friends, acquaintances, strangers and fellow human beings. It is the gift of acceptance. Acceptance doesn't mean agreement. It doesn't require forfeiting yourself or your values. It eloquently says, "I accept you as a fellow human being, worthy of the respect you deserve to guide your own life, pursue your own happiness, and live your dreams, harming none; that you are enough just as your are, worthy of kindness, love and respect without conditions."

You can choose acceptance over hate, division, judgment or cruelty. You can give it commencing with yourself, and then extend it to those closest to you, then continue giving it even to those who are least like you. We are all equal. We are all one family, the human element of our beloved home and planet. Nothing says "Peace on Earth and goodwill to all men" like acceptance. Begin giving acceptance today, and continue giving throughout the new year.

Too bad the world can't accept each other.
