Someday at Christmas




Every year at Holiday time, I post Stevie Wonder's wonderful creation 'One Day at Christmas' For some time, I've intended to do it again, as I have each year since 2009.
 
This year, there seems more reason than ever to consider these beautiful words. Today is the one week anniversary of the school shootings at Sandy Hook school in Newtown, Connecticut. As many of you know, I am not far from there- maybe five miles. This week of sadness and funerals have been heartbreaking for everyone here.
 
Then there's the situation in Washington.Our politicians play games, while the nation for whom they work suffers.
 
2012 has not been a kind or easy year, even as things begin to get better for many of us. As they do, I ask that we not....that we never forgot those for whom things are not getting better. Towards that end, I offer 'One day at Christmas'
 
Christmas"

 "Someday At Christmas"


 
Someday at Christmas men won't be boys
Playing with bombs like kids play with toys
One warm December our hearts will see
A world where men are free

Someday at Christmas there'll be no wars
When we have learned what Christmas is for
When we have found what life's really worth
There'll be peace on earth

Someday all our dreams will come to be
Someday in a world where men are free
Maybe not in time for you and me
But someday at Christmastime

Someday at Christmas we'll see a land
With no hungry children, no empty hand
One happy morning people will share
Our world where people care

Someday at Christmas there'll be no tears
All men are equal and no men have fears
One shining moment, one prayer away
From our world today

Someday all our dreams will come to be
Someday in a world where men are free
Maybe not in time for you and me
But someday at Christmastime

Someday at Christmas man will not fail
Hate will be gone and love will prevail
Someday a new world that we can start
With hope in every heart

Someday all our dreams will come to be
Someday in a world where men are free
Maybe not in time for you and me
But someday at Christmastime
Someday at Christmastime

2 other songs not related to Christmas but perhaps related to the feelings invoked by this poem, 'where is the love' by the black eyed peas, and 'if everyone cared' by nickelback
