Four days ago and less than a week to go before Christmas, things are getting closer to reality than I can count. Five more days will ring the hardest part of life – the passing of my grandmother.
This will, literally be the be the second Christmas without her, but largely the ultimate time of reflection of her 82 years of life. I’m not really prone to reflections of life all that easy as the “George Bailey” character in the Jimmy Steward Movie, “Its a wonderful life,” in iconic Christmas classic that spells the true meaning of Christmas.
The reflections of one’s Christmas is shadowed by things that have happened during one’s past year of life, the course of misery and turmoil marred the battle between scrooges who decided to take life into their own hands and take people’s dreams away from people who worked hard to make their dreams a reality – only to get it stolen by some “robo signer” in the mortgage, lending and banking business.
This Christmas marks tough economic times and hardships for those who have been fighting and literally given up on the fight to secure their family homes and generations of land and property that has been in many family heritages for many generations since this country was discovered by Christopher Columbus in 1492.
Everyday, when I look out the window, I see cars driving up and down the street and I often wonder how many of those were victims of a foreclosure, bribery and extortion of a “Robo signer” in the Mortgage, Lending and Banking business? A hard count is very hard to settle and swallow if there were any real data on exactly how many of those were actual victims of a “Robo theft” – perhaps, I should say an extortioner’s hunger for a digestive appetite for profiting in extortion of stealing peoples property for their own gain and profit sharing with banks & lenders.
I often worry about those who struggle. Those who try vainly to stay afloat without drowning in the sea of con’s working their trade to profit in a fast growing business that should be illegally defined as federal offense and punishable with a fine and long winded jail sentence where they’d never touch the ink of a pen and the stroke of a signature to take one’s dreams and family generations of ownership of the American Dream to those who deserve the bitterness and quality of life.
Banks, Mortgage companies and Money Lenders are nothing in my book as classical thieves who droll on those that are vulnerable – Unless you happen to have a good ally in the banking business your better off doing business with them, than, those who set up shop on the corner luring you to theft, crime and no other means to save your piece of the American Dream.
Americans deserve better this Christmas, than those who choose to be pity and steal for personal and profitable gains. It’s not about how they do business? It show how they conduct business without being an honest friend and businessman or women. The loss is to great to swallow and cherish, but, only the star will shine once again on a Christmas tree somewhere, someplace, somehow when Christmas arrives next week on Saturday morning.
The truth is – there is magic out there this holiday season, you just need to find it and believe in your own heart that there is really a Christmas. As George Baily said, “Clarence, I don’t care what happens to me, just give me back to my wife and kids,” and the ultimate gift of magic was drawn upon him with the help of his family and friends, he became the richest man in town, has his brother, “Harry” said, while bringing a toast to his big brother, while gathered among family and friends.
Perhaps, Clarence could use another set of Wings this Christmas?
