I know it’s after Christmas, but I had to share this video. Love Actually is my favorite Christmas movie! (Actually, it’s the only Christmas movie that I watch every year.) So, I had to see St. Wilfrid’s versions of the scenes from the movie. They did an awesome job. It definitely put me into the Christmas spirit.
In an era where many feel a sense of entitlement, the act of gratitude has disappeared. To be hospitable to your neighbor isn’t the social act of giving them a place to stay. It’s the act of caring about your fellow human and showing that caring before the moment is lost. T. Lanette Pollard
When I wrote Part 1, I hadn’t finished watching this episode. Now I have, and I realize that it fit with the message I heard in church.

History has been repeating daily since DT was elected. It won’t end well especially for Americans like me who understand the danger of a DT administration. So, if you don’t understand how a candidate can be “groomed” for an election, watch this movie.

Why Fox News Has an Issue with Memory Loss
So this morning, I was greeted by this on my Facebook news feed. Fox News is saying that President Obama did not capture Bin Laden. This “pundit” (I won’t call him a reporter) wants to credit Bush.
Peter Finch’s words in Network (1976) are so relevant after this election. This movie came to my mind last week, especially this iconic scene, after living with the 2016 U.S. election fallout. I have grieved. I have reasoned. I have explained. I have stepped away from people whose choice for president affects my civil rights and safety. I have watched hate crimes increase. All of this, and we still have the same weak media coverage that existed during the election.
Peter Finch’s words…
I’m as mad as hell, and I’m not going to take this anymore!
I have reached that point? Have you?
