So once again, we’ve reached the “End of the World”.  I doubt there are too many people out there who thought something would actually happen to end human life or civilization, but there it is.  A prediction made global headlines for weeks, and we’ve all enjoyed jokes about not bothering to shop for Christmas.

For some people, though, today will be the end of their world.  Someone’s brother or father, spouse or child will pass away.  Someone will be fired from their dream job.  How painful the irony must be for those people.  The world may not be ending, but their worlds are. 

I could talk about how poignant moments like this are fodder for writers, but I won’t today.  Out of respect for those whose worlds are ending today.  Instead, I’ll simply wish everyone Happy Holidays – whichever holiday you are celebrating.
