More than 20 years ago, a group of artists got together to record a special holiday song to raise funds for the millions in Africa suffering from malnutrition.  Well, there is never a shortage of people in need, both her in America and around the world. In these past few years, and especially the past few weeks and months, the people living in Aleppo, Syria's largest city, have been suffering some of the worst kinds of atrocities, caught in the cross-hairs of a bloody civil war.

So as you head out to the mall to do catch the latest bargain on things from your Christmas list, please be mindful of how lucky you are to be doing that, because halfway around the world, a great many people, many of them children, are suffering.  And if you'd like to take part in the spirit of the season, you can help out the innocent victims of this human tragedy by donating to the International Rescue Committee.  I know I will.  In the meantime, enjoy a Christmas classic...
