When it comes to Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years, people seem to come together more. It should not come down to a holiday for us to come together.

Now, I know it’s a good feeling seeing family and friends on holidays. But what about when it’s not a holiday. When we take time out to pick up a phone, just to say hello to a friend or loved one, it makes coming together better.

Most family and friends live in the same city or town and the only time you get in touch with them is on a holiday. No matter what we go through in life, good or bad, when we come together, our situations and problems will get better.
