Yes, there have been some real downers this year, personally and world wide, but I think I'm fortunate in coming out more positive and negative. I sometimes wish I could spend Christmas with family, but with geographic issues, I don't see it happening this year.

Great stories. Kudos to the NY cop and his compassion and practical assistance and to the tourist who caught the moment and pfooey to the naysayers. What a delightful story about the reunion of the two boys.

Loved the story of the two kids.
