Chris Brown has it wrong: The world, at times, isn’t loyal. Society tends to be loyal to the hustle and bustle of their daily lives. Their minds are consumed with their own problems or scrolling down their Facebook timeline to get a glimpse of Kim Kardashian’s latest antics. As we enter into the holiday season and sit at our family dinner tables breaking bread and giving thanks, we can choose to un-follow society’s lead and ground ourselves into the spirit of giving to our fellowman in need. During November and December, stress runs high in most families. Finances are stretched to buy gifts or to travel to see family members. Seeing those family members we don’t quite get along with or not being able to see relatives and friends can add even more stress to a relationship. Excessive alcohol consumption is usually an added factor at this time of year. Sometimes our expectations of what should happen compared to what actually happens can give us the holiday blues. Many of us try to out do ourselves during the holidays and arguments happen. But what about abuse during the season? How can it be prevented?On Sunday, December 21 D.I.P. Foundation will be hosting its 2 Annual Food, Clothing & Toy Giveaway: 712 West Duval Street Jacksonville, FL 32202 at 2PM. The event’s purpose is to rally community supporters together in order to ease someone’s pain by bringing some holiday cheer to needy families in Jacksonville. We all endure our own challenges in our lives. We go through them so that we may be a beacon of light to others. Help someone know that there is a light at the end of the tunnel.
