Before I get to my column, here are some new research studies on the following for you:

I've said for years there are healthful benefits to eating moderate amounts of dark chocolate, once being cancer and the flu. Just don't over do it with the chocolate and make sure it is dark chocolate. Milk chocolae has no health benefits!

Dark Chocolate May Protect DNA From Damage
Consumption of polyphenol-rich dark chocolate may protect DNA from oxidative damage, preventing artery hardening and heart disease, says a new study. Writing in the British Journal of Nutrition, Italian researcher report that consumption of dark chocolate containing 860 milligrams of polyphenols, and 58 milligrams of epicatechin, led to a 20 per cent reduction in DNA damage two hours after consumption.

How Vitamin D Can Help Save You from the Swine Flu
Surely you've heard the importance of vitamin D when it comes to your health. And now, a new study suggests that vitamin D is SO essential to your immune system, that it's been preserved in the human genome for over sixty million years! With a history like that, you can't go wrong in getting more vitamin D. Keep reading to find out more about this discovery. I myself take 2,000 MG of Vitamin D3 daily. It works better if it is in a gel capsule form and rice oil is used as the additional ingredient and it does not contain any additives or chemical excipients.

My column, Hope Through The Eyes Of Tereminally ILL Children was originally run December, 1996.
Because of so many requests, it is being printed again this year at this time with updates of what is going on in the world. Also in memory of my beloved pet companion, "Star", who passed away in December 2007, I write in her memory in hopes of showing what unconditional love truly means.

In Search Of God...
Hope... Through The Eyes Of
Terminally ILL Children
And...In Loving Memory of My Beloved "Star"

December 5, 2009

The following is a postscript from David Lawrence Dewey before the main column regarding recent world events.

I am deeply saddened by the continued violence in the Mideast. Brothers should not be killing one another over religion. This is NOT the way of GOD in any religious teachings. Those that foster the killing of innocents over sectarian religious differences or because they are holding "grudges" from the past, they need to truly practice their teachings and faith. Those that kill the innocent fall short of God and are hypocrites. Those using GOD's name to create militias to kill innocents are not of GOD but of evil. God is about Love, not about Fear.

It is time for those in the middle east, those that are truly faithful in their spiritual beliefs and not of religious fanatical dogma need to stand up and be counted. If you know of those that are killing innocents wrongly, you need to expose them to those that can correct this evil. If you know those that are doing this inhumanity to their fellow man, then you need to reach out to the world community, and those within your own religious world to STOP this evil. Any man that places himself ABOVE GOD and does things in the name of GOD to gain political power and power over those less fortunate are NOT of GOD. They are of evil and this evil must be stamped out.

I ask each of you around the GLOBE, search within your heart to stop the shedding of lives of the innocent. Stand up within a GLOBAL community regardless of religion or politics and say, "ENOUGH IS ENOUGH", this must stop. God is about love, forgiveness and helping your fellow man. God is about treating your fellow man like you wish to be treated, with respect, dignity, honor and love. God is NOT ABOUT KILLING INNOCENTS. And those of you that do so, will one day meet GOD and will have to answer for your actions. I pray that God will truly touch your hearts with these truths and you STOP this evil killing of innocents.

Global Warming has been an issue of mine since 1997 when I wrote my first columns, alerting my readers to metling ice caps due to carbon dioxide levels increasing in the in the ice. If you have not read my columns over the years, I urge you to and support measures to end man made global warming.

In Loving Memory of My Beloved, "Shining Star"....
What Un-Conditional Love Is Truly About !

Postscript from David Lawrence Dewey

The following I wrote on December 2007, sharing with my readers the last few days of my beloved cat, "Star". I hope it will inspire you, wherever you live in the world, to love your fellow man.....

Over the last few days of my beloved Star's remaining days in December 2007, I was blessed with something quite remarkable and beautiful. If humans beings showed the same unconditional love that my other cats showed towards my beloved Shining Star who was in her final days, the world would be a much better place. As my beloved Star was dying, my other cats during her last few days, groomed her forehead, her sides and feet for her because she was too weak to groom herself. This is the purest form of un-conditional love of what they did for her. They even sat and laid with her to give her warmth. My prayer and wish this Christmas is that humans all over the world would love one another like my cats showed towards Star, showing her unconditional love. That was also what Christ was trying to teach mankind, un-conditional love, however, even after 2,000 years, mankind is still a cold blooded killer towards his fellow man over their own religious beliefs, not God's teachings !

It must truly break God's heart as he probably sheds tears everyday because of the things mankind does to one another in the name of religion. When we do these horrible things to one another, we are not God's children, we are nothing. Terrorists in the world that kill others are nothing but more but cowardly animals who hide behind their religion and do their evil in the name God, what a hypocrisy. And why? It is all due to education. As I've always said, educate the poor of the truths and you will not have this ludcrious madness of religion being taught that kills and murders their fellow man.

Star As BabyThis was my Shining Star when she was a baby. She was born June 20, 2000. She was 7 years, 5 months old when she died. She had a genetic condition called Polycystic Kidney Disease. It is the same type of disease that humans have by the same name. I did not know she had it until the onset began this last August. The breeder that I purchased her from never tested her for this genetic disease. It is a insidious disease that suddenly appears out of no where. The usual onset in cats is between 7 and 8 years old. In humans, it is around 50 years old, which is what a 7 to 8 year old cat equates to in human years.

Star AugustThis was Star in August before she became ill. She was a regal lady. She was registered through the Cat Fanicers Association. Her Mother was a Grand Champion. She was a rare breed for her color. Her breed is called a Golden Hair English Tabby. There are only about 3,500 of her color/breed in the U.S. . Here she is sitting on my desk, which was one of her favorites places to be with me.

She was named Star because she has a "STAR" on her forehead.

Star TodayThis is Star today, December 15th. She was resting here, but was very tired. She had become very anemic because as the kidney's start to fail, she stopped making red blood cells. The kidneys both in humans and animals produce a hormone that stimulates the bone marrow to produce red blood cells. Red blood cells have a life of only about 127 days, meaning they die about every 127 days, but the body is making new ones every day. In this disease, the kidney tissue is damaged further and further where it is not making an hormone at all, thus no new red blood cells will be made. Red blood cells carry oxygen throughout the body to organs, tissues, etc. Without it, organs start to fail.

In both humans and animals, it is a genetic disease due to a gene defect. The kidneys upon birth have multiple microscopic cysts within the kidneys. As the human or animal ages, they start to grow and the onset, meaning the cysts have grown so large that they have eaten away good kidney tissue. The kidneys stop producing the hormone and stop filtering our toxins from the blood.

Star lost nearly 2 pounds during the last 4 months. Over the last few months, I had to give her IV solution, lactated ringers under her skin to keep her hydrated and to keep fluids running through her kidneys to utilize what remaining kidney tissue left to continue filtering toxins out of her little body. There also was the feeding of her food with supplements put in a blender to liquify to put in syringes for that I fed her food twice a day through these syringes. WIthout this, her liver would have started to shut down within 4-5 days. If cats do not eat something within 4-5 days, their liver starts to shut down. That is why many strays cats die a horrible death if they do have anything to eat.

By the way, there is a simple DNA test that can detect this disease in cats. UC Davis Veterinary Genetics Research Labs performs the test for $40.00. You can download the mail-in form and instructions for the test at the the website. And you can do it very easily. You simply swab 3 Q-Tips around the inside of the cats gums and mouth, put them in a plain white envelope, mail it to US Davis with $40.00. It is important to know if you cat has this genetic disease of the kdineys, for if they do, your cat SHOULD NOT be vacinated with a Crandall-Reese-Feline distemper vaccine for distemper. These vaccines are actually made from feline kidney tissue. If your cat has this genetic disease, having a CRF distemper shot can bring upon the disease to mainfest itself before the age of 7 to 8 in the cat. 6% of all cats, that is 6 out of 100 test positive for the PKD recessive gene that causes PKD Disease. In addition, even if your cat does not have the PKD gene and the cysts, the Crandall-Reese-Feline distemper shot can cause Chronic Kidney Failure by itself. Most vets are unaware of both this DNA test and the serious ramifications of a cat with this gene defect receiving a distemper shot, and even cats that do not have the gene defect.

You can find out more about this gene DNA test at UC Davis Vet Research Labs. Dr. Michael Lappin at the Colorado Veterinary School of Medicine,:

These studies have shown that the adminstration of the Crandall-Reese-Feline distemper vaccine can cause kidney damage and chronic kidney failure in cats by itself. There is a distemper vaccine that is not made from feline kidney tissue, but is is approxmiately five time the cost of the other vaccine and most vets do not keep it in stock and it has to be ordered. I have been in contact with Dr Lappin, who led the studies, and he tells me that he currently (2007) advises following the 2006 AAF Guidelines for feline vaccinations, PDF Copy of new 2007 guidelines, for vaccinating cats. He also recommends only giving vaccines that are appropriate for your cat's situation.

Star TodayThis was my beloved Star as of December 18th, 2007. She was in her final days. The little baseball pillow is her favorite pillow. She has always slept with putting her chin on it for years. Here, you can see the beautiful Star on her forehead. Losing a loved one during this time of the year is I believe the hardest time of the year to lose someone you love. Her blood work on Monday showed that she only had a few days to live.

December 21st, 2007, 10:30 AM. I had to put my beloved Star to sleep this morning. I had hoped that she would have just past away in her sleep, but that was not going to the the case and I had to do something to keep her from experiencing a slow agonzing death. She had become so anemic that she could not longer stand or walk. Her kidneys were still functioning and I had to change towels every 2-3 hours after she would urinate. Her last blood work showed that she only had approxmiately 22% of normal red blood cells, she was not going to recover from this. Since red blood cells carry oxygen to cells, tissue, muscles and organs throughout the body, her breathing had become labored because her little body simply was not getting enough oxygen and it would have been only a matter of time if she did not die on her own that she would have down into extreme pain and that I would not let her go through. With much regret, I put her to sleep today so she would no longer be in the state she was in and especially where she was heading, a painful and possibly a drawn out horrible death. I loved her too much for her to go through that. Some may say I should have simply let her die on her own, however, I disagree with that. If we love our pet companions unconditionally, we will not let them suffer.

Just before the Vet administered the shot to put Star to sleep, my face was against hers, Star with very little strength in her body, reached out her little paw and placed it on my cheek and said with much effort in a soft meow, "LO.. U". She was telling me... "love you". The vet administered the shot, and as Star drew her last breathe, she pressed her little paw against my cheek one last time and whispered the words again, "LO...U". She then went to peaceful sleep and would no longer be suffering. Star was a very intelligent little gal. She had developed her own vocabulary over the years and if you really paid attention you could actually understand her.

As I write this tribute to her, my eyes are filled with tears. Star has been my special little gal these last 7 years. We had and will always have a special bond. I am sharing this with you, my readers, in hopes that as you read the column to follow, regardless of where you are in the world, that you will see through the eyes of this beautiful cat that there truly is love in the world, but most importantly, hope for a new world where there is a peace and love toward their fellow man.

Star would like me to give everyone this message. "Love your fellow man as you would love yourself, treat your fellow man as you want to be treated, and love your fellow man as God loves you."

I wish each and everyone of you a blessed Christmas and Holiday Season. ~ ~ David Lawrence Dewey

Do you care about your health, the health of your children, grandchildren, your family and even your friends, then get involved in doing something about it! I have joined forces with Greta Nuernberger Ferebee, a housewife from Florida in the gathering of signatures for the 2007 Health Reform Petition Campaign to get our elected representatives in Washington to force the FDA to ban SUCRALROSE, ASPARTAME, NEOTAME, MSG, HYDROGENATED OILS, HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP and all artificial and chemical preservatives, additives and dyes which are added in large quantities to the American food supply. Make sure you read about this nationwide campaign in my column,
The American Health R e f o r m Nationwide Petition Campaign the current column...


Over the last decade, there have been many people around the world who have started to "think" about their spirituality. Many have left the churches from all of the faiths, including, Christianity, the Islamic faith, Hindu and many other faiths. Many have joined such religions. And many that have remained in their faiths, are looking deeper into themselves of what spirituality is and or what is their belief in something greater. And there are some who are simply searching for another way of truly being spiritual.

What has caused this exploration into the higher spirituality of oneself and in search of truth and of God? Before I get to the children... who, through their eyes offer much wisdom and hope for mankind... if mankind will truly listen... Let's first explore some of the possible reasons of mankinds spiritual quest in these troubled times.

In the early 1990's, the impulse for this higher spirituality fueled the "historical Jesus" debates as liberal scholars questioned the historical accuracy of the New Testament and whittled down the remaining books of the Gospel down to a few verses to them that yes, Jesus performed healings, but no to his Resurrection. What was causing this questioning? Ancient texts that were tarred by the early church fathers in 350 A.D. as heresy. What are these ancient texts?

The Christian Gospels in question are, The Gospel of Peter, Gospel of Mary, The Acts of John, The Homilies Of Clement, The Gospel of Truth, The Gospels Of Thomas, ( yes, doubting Thomas ).

In addition, the discovery of the 46 scriptures dug up near Nag Hammadi in Eqypt, The Dead Sea Scrolls of the Essenses changed the views of early christianity with the books of, "The War Between The Sons Of Light and Darkness", and several scriptures detailing how Jesus lived with the Essenses for seven years before returning to Jerusalem.

One of the earliest Christian faiths was the Gnostic faith. This faith was an adaption of Greek philosophy. Christian Gnostics believed that our troubled world and deteriorating bodies were created by an inferior and maligned deity or God, but that at that last instance before birth, a higher, better God inserted in each of us a spark of spiritual truth and light of his divinity, and that if we could attain enough knowledge to conquer our delusional attachment to material reality, we could then free our higher spiritual self to our real Father in Heaven in a better place. And that Christ was the so called alarm clock that awoke this spiritual awakening, however, much of humanity remained deaf to the truth within.

Then came the Ebonites, they were the early jews in Jerusalem. Then came the Macrionites. They were the opposite of the Ebonites, eliminating all references of Judaism from their Christian teachings. Then came the Thomasines in early christianity after Christ. Their basic tenets were that all of humanity shares divinity. Jesus taught to rediscover that divinity within all of us and to live it daily. Understanding that was more important that just believing in his atoning sacrifice on the cross. The Thomasines hierachy. Instead, they taught freedom of personal expression, an openness to the role of women and taught there was no need for guilt in ones life if one truly believed in the teachings of Christ.

Now before and inbetween all these periods and afterwards, you have the Islamic, Hindu, and Buddhist faiths emerging worldwide. Did you know that Peter travelled to eastern Asia where he taught the early christian teachings and where many of the eastern faiths began to emerge from?

Did you know that in Christianity, the Islamic faith, Hindu and other faiths that Abraham in the bible is the early father of all of these faiths? Abraham is stated as the father in each of these different religious faiths. Interesting isn't it? Did you know that all of these faiths teach of the garden, the great flood, Noah and many other events of both the old and new testaments?

So, if this is true, then where and when did all these different faiths, Christianity, Islam, Hindu, Buddhist separate from the one living God they all believed in and went their separate ways? It occurred because of MEN calling themselves prophets, who supposedly were messengers from God. Moses was one, Mohammed was another. Messangers of what is my question, because did they really clear up things so man could live in true spirituality of God? I don't think so, here is why.

What is interesting is that if one studies both the natural history of mankind along side the religious history of mankind, one finds that every war through the ages was caused by this one main controlling evil as I call it, POWER. Power to conquer lands to acquire more lands and riches. Power to place oneself as KING of a nation or empire, whether it be the Christian or Islamic faith. The power to enforce one particular spiritual religion upon the masses of another and in some instances, no spirituality at all. That was the major reason for the creation of the Anglican Church in England and the King James Bible because the Catholic Empire was gaining to much POWER and WEALTH in the world, but more importantly, it was taking away the POWER of a KING. It all had to do with the ego of POWER within man. It had NOTHING to do with spiritual truth of God. And that lust for POWER is still the driving force today and it has not only bred the "evil" in man, but has caused all of the "evil" in the world since creation until the present time. Examples are men like Hitler, Hussein, Amin, Osama Bin Laden and any man that has placed himself above his fellow man and tried to call himself God or wanted to be treated as God with servitude from the masses. And if they did not serve, then they were tortured and killed, or if they did not "believe" as they did, then they were "demons" and had to be killed. What has been forgotten is that only GOD has the right to judge, no mortal man on earth has that right.

The continuous onslaught of the killing of mankind's spirituality throughout the ages I believe has finally caused an "awakening of the soul", that there is something much greater and truthful than what "spiritual religious men", have been abusing for their own POWER, greed and lust of the materiality of this world. This I believe has caused the countless numbers of souls that are now, In Search Of God.

Mankind has been hypocritical and a liar in their faiths. They do not "live" what they learn or "preach". However, today, it appears that those that are "living" their religion are either killing their fellow man or trying to "judge" or make their fellow man believe as they do. There are only two very simple laws from God that all have forgotten and they are, "Treat your fellow man as you would want to be treated, " and "Love thy fellow man as thyself." And it is those two very simple laws that I believe that have been awakening the souls of humanity and are bringing about the "truth" of God. If those two very simple laws were truly lived in the world today by all faiths in the world, just imagine the peace and the garden that would exist on earth today.

So, until mankind of all faiths can reach this spiritual truth, then to me all faiths that proclaim to be of God, whether they be Christian, Islamic, Hindu or Buddhist are hypocrites to their faiths. They are no better than those who sold trinkets in the temple. They are an abomination to God.

On the Barbara Walters ABC special, Where Is Heaven", that aired on December 20, 2005 - ( it is being re-aired this week - check your local ABC listings ) - I noticed something that "clicked" for the very first time. The program showed evangelical youths in the U.S. waving their arms and shouting words of faith and also youths in various Islamic countries basically doing the same thing. If you take a good look at these young people, they are for one, very impressionable and can be easily manipulated. Young teenagers are looking for something, because many from both sides of this religious fence were not raised properly. Many of these teenagers in the U.S. who have found "religion" come from broken homes and or have had serious challenges in their lives as young people. Many of the Islamic youths are orphans due to war over the last fifty years in that region of the world.

Evangelical teenagers are taught that unless you are born again and accept Christ as your savior you will go to hell. Islamic youths are taught from a very young age that Islam is only true religion and death to all western cultures and if they die a martyr they will have 72 virgins waiting for them in heaven. By the way, the 72 virgins is NOT is the Koran. It is something that radical Islamic groups have taught young men and women to bring them into the fold as terrorists.

Is there any wonder why there is so judgemental attitudes thus creating hatred among people who are suppose to be children of God.

Through the years, I have studied every religious faith and teaching known to man since the dawn of ages. What I have come to realize is that children are truly the "spiritual truth" of God. As the old saying states, "Through the mouth of a child shall much be revealed," I am going to close this column with a column I wrote in 1999. It says it all, please see the truth in what these children express.

When I was growing up, a Lakota Sioux medicine woman recited this passage to me, "and the children shall lead them". Sound familiar from a bible passage? Through the years, this passage has become ever so true to me. Here's why.

One of the most joyous things that I do is visit children in children's hospitals from time to time. These are children that are terminally ill and are between the ages of 6 and 16. It is through their truly remarkable and innocent eyes of how they see the world that I too have grown spiritually to see the world in its' simplistic truths. Many of the truths are not pleasant to admit. That is because mankind (adults), would have to see something within themselves that they truly do not want to see and CHANGE. These children somehow see these truths and untruths so easily though.

These children know they do not have much time on this earth. I believe it is this that somehow elevates their whole being to a higher state of consciousness, of pure spirituality where we should all be at. What I mean is this.

These children have asked me questions that we as adults should be asking ourselves everyday. We should be more than just asking ourselves, we should be doing something to correct them. The children have usually been told that I am a writer and I believe this opens up the doors so to speak. This is why I believe they are so open with me. I've also been told by people that for some reason I have a special gift of getting children to open up and talk about things. The following is a list of the most common questions that I've been asked by these children.

Why do people kill one another?

Why do people hit one another?

Why do people call people of other colors by other names?

Why are there children going hungry in the world?

Why do men in uniforms kill children?

Why do white people hate black people so much?

Why do black people hate white people so much?

Why doesn't everyone just speak one language, English so we can understand one another better?

Why are people from other countries sneaking into our country?

Why are people put to death for crimes?

Why do other kids make fun of other kids if they aren't wearing fancy clothes?

Why do kids make fun of other kids if they look different or aren't smart?

Why do kids call kids other names like, geek or nut?

How come my parents wouldn't let me be friends with a friend because my parents don't like the other kids parents?

How come the President got away with lieing? - That's what my parents say he did.

Why do other countries hate us so much?

Why is there starving children in the world?

Why don't people care bout the oceans, trees, the forests?

Why do they make cars that put out gas that kill things and make us sick?

The water is my town is so bad we have to boil it. Is the water bad all over?

Will the air one day be so bad we won't be able to breathe?

Why do other people kill their friends at work?

Why does my parents usually come home from work with a headache and all stressed out?

My parents say the world is going to hell? Is that true?

Why do my parents always fight over money?

How come my parents never tell me they love me, but always yell at me for doing something wrong?

Why are people afraid of dieing?

Is there a heaven? Is there a hell? Is there a devil? Is there a fire that I will be put into when I die if Jesus hasn't saved me?

Why do people hurt people by saying bad things about them?

Why do I have this illness? Why can't they find a cure for it?

Why don't people just love everybody and go around and just give everybody a big hug?

Why do the Arabs and the Jews kill one another? Don't they each believe in God? If they do, then they shouldn't be killing one another.

What I have found amazing from among all these children in their questions is simple. If you look at the questions, all mostly center around negativity. Negativity dealing with anger, hatred, fear, lying, death. Love on the otherhand is a central issue for them. What they are simply saying is, why does mankind go around doing all these bad things to one another instead of just simply loving one another? They are also asking simple questions out of their concern as guardians for Mother Earth, that we as adults should be asking. Why are we cutting down the rain forests? Are we that stupid not to see that we are diminishing our oxygen supply? Why do we call people of other color, names that are negative in tone? Why are we letting innocent children being killed and murdered in countries? And the list goes on and on.

Why are we adults not caring about the right things? These dieing children see the truth for what it is. Is it time for us adults to take a cold hard look within ourselves and honestly answer these questions within ourselves? Why is it so hard for us adults to do this? These children have so easily and beautifully displayed what we should already believe in and be doing.

This Christmas can mark the begining of a new spirituality for mankind. It is an opportunity for mankind to embark or a new glorious spiritual awakening with love or... continue to embrace the same negative paths man has taken the last 5,000 years. Will mankind make the changes that will help heal the many problems that mankind faces? I believe so. However, I believe... the healing changes will only come about once mankind has begun to see the world as these children see it and as adults all around the world we effect this spiritual awakening of these simple truths.

If these children who know they are dieing can provide the simple answers, then we as intelligent adults should know also. What do I think is the difference between us adults and these children that are dieing? I believe it has to do with heart. Each one of these children I have spoken to over the years have shown their heart. Have our hearts as adults been so hardened that we have forgotten these simple precepts and truths within us? This has nothing to do with any specific religion or faith. God is God, regardless if one is a Christian, a Buddist, a Islamic, or whatever. It simply has to do with what is truly...a simple right or wrong.

People of any faith or religion are hyprocrites if they do not "live" what they believe in. If you talk the talk, you must walk the walk. Like I said though, I believe people have lost heart. They've lost heart because of what we have allowed the world to become. We've allowed those negatives to slowly creep into our daily lives so that now they seem a normal part of daily living. Nothing is normal about the millions of homeless we have in this country. It is not normal to have hundreds of thousands of people going to bed hungry in this country, the richest on earth. It is not normal for rich wealthy nations to let thousands of people in other countries go hungry. It is not normal to allow corruption to flourish and allow our elected officials to participate in this corruption without punishment. If mankind truly is God loving... then mankind needs to learn to live by the goldren rule. Love thy neighbor as thyself. And all this killing over religion. Please, does God, regardless of what religion or faith... whether it is Christian, Muslim, Islamic, Buddist, do any of us have a God that thinks that killing people is okay to do? I don't believe so. And if you think it is okay, then you are deluding yourself and are nothing more than a hypocritical liar that justifies the killing of people for the sake of a religion, you are doing so for your own selfish justifications. There is Karma and God does not condone killing of any type for any reason!

Corruption is destroying much in our lives. For example, a recent government report estimates that nearly one-third of our nations water supply has been polluted with dangerous cancer causing chemicals. The heavy use of commercial fertilizers for farming has leeched into underground water supplies. How much longer are we going to stop lieing to ourselves. It is not normal to allow politicians to remain in office that are only self-serving. Must I go on, I think you get the picture.

This Christmas may I ask you this? Instead of worrying about what you're going to buy Mom, Dad, Brother, Sister, and all those on your shopping list, would you stop a minute and reflect on where you are in your life. Would you think about how blessed you are and how others are not. And last, think about how you can do things differently in the next year how you can make things better in this world. I don't mean to sound as if l am coming off like a self-righteous I'm gonna tell ya what's wrong with you speech. I am simply trying to share with you something that I've learned to be truth. That is... and a child shall lead them. Could that passage also mean that it could be our own inner child within us that also knows the truth.

And for doing something this year, for Christmas... maybe instead of buying all those gifts for everyone, donate just one half of the amount you would spend on each person in their name to a charity in your area that feeds and houses the homeless or some similar charity you feel worthwhile. Go out to an animal shelter and adopt a homeless pet as well. Mankind has forgotten that we are the keepers of our animals, we are to protect and care for them. Start charities in your areas to help the homeless, the hungry and to setup no kill animal shelters.

The main thing is that you will have chosen to make a difference in making this world a better place to live in. And by the way, don't stop with just donating this Christmas to a charity. Get envolved and make a difference throughout the year!

I hope that mankind in the coming months embarks on a glorious spiritual re-birth. A re-birth simply in the sense of knowing that we all can truly make a difference to make this earth a better place to live in. If mankind is ever going to fulfill the glory and beauty of our creation that God made us in his image, then we as children of God must not only talk the talk, but walk in the light of what we preach and proclaim. It is actually very simple. The passage, "treat your fellow man as you would like to be treated," means to love our fellow man not hate him. I believe there is still hope for mankind.

Each year, I like to share the following poem that I wrote a few years ago. I hope that it gives you something special to think about. I dedicate this column and this poem in hopes of bringing lasting peace and harmony among mankind.

"A Special Journey"

Angel Dove

My life is a special journey,

Between my God and Me,

I chose not always the path he sets before me,

Those of joy, pain and sometimes sorrow.

Not until the last songbird sings its last song,

And the doves of peace cease to fly,

Will God pull down the curtain before heaven,

And explain the reasons why.

Until that day arrives,

I will be one with Him,

For in Him, I have found my light, my peace, his love within,

And without that, I would certainly be no more.

~ ~ David Lawrence Dewey
