raise a glass to everyone.

many thanks to rachel for posting this bit of christmas nostalgia earlier this week.

even though I have heard this a thousand times, it never fails to send chills down my spine when I hear bono sing, "tonight thank god it's them, instead of you."

this year, it may be hard to think of those less fortunate, because we are all pretty much less fortunate due to the greed, corruption and general hatefulness that has plagued us over the past 8 years.

raise a glass to the future, to change, to those who have never known the joy of gifts under the tree, too much to eat and the comfort of nights free from the terror of war and disease.

do what you can.
