"Nativity" by Alexandra Ackerman

An image of young family: Mother, Father, First Born Babe. A tree grows beside them marking the slow passage of time. A lion stands guard protecting that which is precious and fragile. This is an image of hope, of possibilities. A new life. A new year. The hope that we can do better this time.

And so this is Christmas and what have we done,
Another year over, a new one just begun.


War is over if you want it, war is over now.

-From Happy Xmas (War is Over) by John Lennon (click here for full lyrics)
