Brothers and sisters, regardless of the enormous difference in how we perceive the world around us, I refuse to see any of you as my enemy ("The Top 10 Stories of 2019," Dec. 26). You and I, I'm certain, feel the same delight in a beautiful sunrise, a flower or the innocent laughter of a child. Surely we feel joy and sorrow in the same way. We are, after all, members of the amazing human family, and I weep to see us set against each other. I simply will not believe that we cannot reach out to each other, agree on our basic common interest and work together in that interest.
In the name of all that is truly real, loving and holy, I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a blessed New Year.
Peter Childs, Miranda
