Who Will You Show Love To This Christmas?

There is a man on the corner with everything he owns in a shopping cart.

He watches you from the corner as you shop in the store across the street for things you don't even need

Tell me, Who will give him a present on Christmas?

There is a Mom who cries every night until she falls asleep, because she doesn't know what her children are going to eat, for Christmas and every day after and in between.

Tell me, Who will bring her Christmas?

There is a little girl that don't understand why the little girl across the street has a coat, boots, scarf and gloves, while she shivers in her sweater on her way to the bus stop.

Tell me, Who will bless her with the gift of warm clothing this Christmas?

There is an elderly gentlemen who hasn't had a visitor in years, the only face he sees is the senior care van that brings him daily meals.

Tell me, Who will give him a Christmas smile, kiss or hello?

There is family that has suffered the lost of a job, they barely have enough to make it through the month. They live by candlelight and wash up at the gas station.

Tell me, Who will remember them this Christmas?
