One of the things I enjoy about this time of year is Trans-Siberian Orchestra. They have created some amazing music, with three of their albums being geared toward Christmas. One of my favorites is “The World That He Sees”.
It’s that refrain: “And he dreamed of another world, in another time, and another place. Where no man has to wear a sign saying where he’s from, saying what’s his race. And he wants us to believe, this world that he sees.” I’m actually a little sad that it’s become a more and more relevant message rather than an increasingly less relevant one. It’s something that we all need to believe in. That world where we see others as people, not focusing on one part of who they are, but in the whole that those parts are the sum of. It’s a beautiful message that applies to all of us and really speaks to the holidays of this time of year. Let’s all continue to work toward making that world a reality.
