 Desert Lightning News Digital Edition - December 2019

Greetings, everyone and welcome to the December 6th edition of D-M AFB Desert Lightning News! As we head into the holidays, we’re privileged to bring you a special seasonal reminiscence, courtesy of the good folks at Regardless of your spiritual orientation, “The Christmas Truce of 1914” is a moving recounting of what can happen in our world when people – even people at war – are willing to set aside their differences for a moment and come together in peace and fellowship. This story strikes a note of harmony and hope that is SO needed in our world today – we hope you enjoy it, meditate on it, and share it as we look back on 2019 and move forward into new hope for the future in 2020.
