    What happened to the Christmas poem?

    I truly wanted to read the Christmas poem but it wasn't there. This happens often. Why do things get removed? Just asking .....

    Sometimes, you may need to refresh the page. Go back the page and then press F5 on your keyboard to refresh the page. That works for me.

    T is it True? H is it Helpful? I is it Inspiring? N is it Necessary? K is it Kind?

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    I tried to post this beautiful poem several times in the past and it was rejected (even though the author encouraged sharing. RosaSharon, I will be happy to send you this poem if you would like. It is about our servicemen/women and Christmas.

    Chance.

    I remember a few years back a Christmas poem being read on the radio regarding our service men&women but have not heard it in the last three years. Is this the same poem you are refereeing to? If so would you please pm it to me. It was a beautiful poem and I really loved it. Thank you and Merry Christmas.

    Just curious as to what rule is being broken with this Christmas poem. As I recall it has no religious message and is no different than listening to any Christmas song or wishing someone a Merry Christmas. I am not disputing this I am just very curious as to the rule. Thanks and have a Merry Christmas.

    Sure wish the rules were numbered so you could tell which you had broken! It is hard to improve if you don’t know what you did wrong.

    the rules are not difficult to understand.
    they are carefully spelled out in excruciating detail.
    numbering them would not make a difference.
    respecting them - even if one might not agree with them - is all that's required.

    i this specific case, i believe somebody was offended by a word in the poem.
    i am not going to argue about whether or not they should have been.
