Spreading Christmas Compassion

Call on your angels
Come down to the city
Crowd around the big tree
All you strangers who know me
Bring your compassion
Your understanding
Lord, how we need it
On this New York City Christmas

Yeah I’m sending you a merry New York Christmas
and a prayer for peace on earth within our time
Hear the sidewalk angels echo hallelujah
We understand them, now more than ever

So call on your angels
You’re beaten and broken
It’s time that we mended
So they don’t fade with the season
Let our mercy be the gifts we lay
From Brooklyn and to Broadway
Celebrate each and every day
of this New York City Christmas

From: Rob Thomas’s A New York City Christmas. Check it out on Youtube here.

There’s something special about NYC, I can’t deny it.  I live really close to it, and can’t say I really like it, but it’s different than anywhere else I’ve been.  NYC is a really big city with it’s share of problems, as well as opportunities to work together.  After 9/11 everyone in the US saw what happens when a city works together and supports each other.

The holidays, more than any other time of year, are about getting together and supporting each other.   Life is short, we only live 80 or so years each, some more and some less.  But each and every day is an opportunity to work together and do what we can to mend our relationships and live whole lives.  If we all come together we can spread the spirit of the season and do some good for others.

So this holiday season, whether you’re gathered around a table or still out shopping, show your fellow man some compassion and remember that we’re all in this together.
