.....During the '60's; I would go with my Mother to do Christmas Shopping, in Downtown Atlanta, and not once was we concerned about our safety or being robbed. We could sense the feeling of the Christmas Season like, We could hear it, see it, and feel the happiness & joyful kindness with the people, it seemed as though it was in the air that we was breathing. The best part was the ride home, on The Atlanta Transit Buses ( City Slickers - without overhead rails ). The ride home would be like a Christmas gathering of strangers that we never met before, but yet, we felt as though they was part of our Christmas family.
........Now; We have only memories of these times, and try our best to pick up some of these remaining pieces from the past, amid being threaten by crime, stopped by police, and doing our best to protect our safety during these Christmas Seasons........By Shopping on The Internet, and having the gifts arrive at the front door.
......I have live through many Christmas Seasons in this county, and it seems as though each year becomes more infested with crime, police stopping us, our shopping bags being searched, and our reluctance to leave our homes.
....Riddle Me With This :
.....Why has The Joy & Happiness of Christmas left this county, without leaving a return address ?
