It's that magical time of year... "the most wonderful time of the year," so it is said. This wonderful time of the year has been the time in which there have been a number of high profile shootings, including the horrific story at Newtown Connecticut.

People tend to get wigged out during high stress times. Yeah, love each other. But relax, too. Stop. Relax.
It is crazy, but being relaxed and keeping composure help cause peace. Being stressful to the point of loss of composure is hazardous to peace.
