Coping with a blue Christmas: My new Metro Parent essay online

"Behind the polite smiles and greetings people give you, some are hurting and lonely. We can't always see people's pain, but they can always feel our kindness."~Marc & Angel Hack Life

My article on this topic is published in the digital edition of Metro Parent. You can read it here.
