There was a homeless man selling Street Sense in downtown DC who was, in a loud voice, telling no one in particular, “Hug tight the people you love.”

It’s good advice this and every holiday. Life if fleeting, but love is forever.

The live feed will be publishing over the holiday, and we will publish on the main page from time to time over the holiday period.

Most bloggers are stepping back, too busy with holiday activities, and postings in the DC blogging community have been light. That’s our cue to step back, too.

Have a wonderful holiday.

Manda Writes Things writes about Eric Garner and Michael Brown. Excerpt: For as long as I can remember, I’ve campaigned to end the war on drugs. It’s resulted in increased violence, loss of rights, and increased addiction. I’ve kept up on the “isolated incidents” resulting in the death of people and/or their pets, of the ruined lives. But yesterday both my heart and my faith in the American justice system shattered.
