How to Respond to Hate During the Holidays

Much of the spirit of Christmas this time of year is about peace on earth and good will toward each other.

So when something like what happened in Poway this week happens, it stands out.  Because it’s stark contrast to what we hear during the holiday season. We reported it.

It was the story about the Nazi swastika that someone painted on the side of a family’s home in Poway and chemicals doused on the family’s car.

It happened on the first night of the Jewish holiday of Hanukkah.  An apparent anti-Semitic hate crime.  The Anti-Defamation League is offering a 3,000 dollar reward to find those who did it.

And it makes you wonder what kind of hate filled person does this kind of thing.  What are they thinking and what’s in their heart?

Sadly we see too many acts of hate and far too often. And they come in many forms and sometimes are filled with violence.

During the holidays, acts of hate can affect us even more than usual.

Thankfully, evil can be overcome with good, and, this time of year, that is the especially good news of the Christmas season.
