Can you imagine what they must have felt when they looked back at their / our ONLY home?

This is a little �poetic� for me but, I want to post it anyway, because of the world we live in right now.

I know that I am not alone in wishing all our dedicated readers a happy……. whatever you celebrate in December. And that�s cool.

Let me first say, that as for me, I will wish all of my Christian friends a Merry Christmas. I will wish all my Jewish friends a Happy Hanukkah! I will wish all my African-American friends a happy Kwanzaa! I will wish all my �olden� friends a happy (past) Solstice and Happy 12 Days.

I am Christian and my partner is Jewish. Our home has unity. We embrace each other’s culture and embrace the common goal of �living together�. I have four Christmas trees in the house, he has a Menorah sitting on the main table. I celebrate with him, he celebrates with me, and I celebrate the Solstice as well. They ALL have meaning to me personally.

The gist of all of this is that I am happy and proud of several things:

First, that I am a member of the Metblogs Community.

Second, that there is true diversity in our blogging community – it makes for a rich and interesting blogging life.

Third, diversity brings a global picture to Human life. It is true that there is great diversity in our lives on Earth – people, religion, culture, etc. – and diversity does, indeed, bring forth issues that are important to all of us and through diversity and spirited debate, we find, I hope, common ground, caring, understanding and love.

Forth, personally speaking, I believe that working toward the concept of �Loving each other and taking care of each other� is the first and most important thing that Humans can do. Blogging has emerged, in the 21st century, as a venue for that, strange as it may seem. Let�s embrace it and see it as an attempt for personal expression and a platform for �reaching out� to others in our world.

I am pleased to be a part of an ever expanding digital home for Humanity. Not only Metblogs but, the blogging and digital home that is expanding daily for all of us. Metblogs adds new cities frequently. I invite you to take the time to read several cities and the entries that are important to those people living there. If we can talk about our lives and listen to our community, we can add � step by step � to what I believe is the fundamental goal of just �getting along� worldwide and enjoying our lives together! That may sound like a bumper sticker but, honestly, don�t you all want that to be real?

Peace and �Live Long and Prosper.� (Spock was right).
