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.
The pressures of celebrating the holidays sometimes causes
tempers to flare, energy levels to soar and arguments to ensue, culminating in
an explosion of domestic violence and abuse. Parties, celebrations and
festivities are everywhere and the temptation for excess can be intoxicating. Alcohol,
drugs, heightened emotions and the wrong combination of family members, are
very often contributing factors in violent holiday explosions. In fact, the
holiday season can be an exceptionally tough emotional period for many domestic
violence victims, even children.
