….a young man will not taste turkey, not get a christmas present from Santa wrapped nicely for him under a Christmas tree. He will not do the things most people around the world will get to enjoy. He will be in the fields working, leading an ox drawn plough, preparing for the fields for planting.
He will be lucky if he gets anything at all. The day will likely seem like any other day. The most that he could hope to get would be a warm plate of rice and chicken. I know this boy very well….because l was once this boy. Some of my friends and relatives will spend christmas like this.
So if by some chance u get to read this thread, know that you are blessed and do not take for granted the family, friends and life you have now.
Have a merry christmas!
