stocking Why don't people believe anymore?

From Amber G, age 13, is this very serious question:

Why don't people believe anymore?

I know exactly what you are saying, Amber.

Just the other day I heard a guy complain that the Cubs will never win the World Series. Ok, that was Santa. But even Santa is entitled to get a little frustrated. He's stopped saying "maybe next year" and he's looking into finding them a good catcher.

But really. I think you're talking about something else, aren't you? I think you're saying that people out there are losing their belief in Christmas. That they are maybe even questioning the existence of Santa Claus.

All I can tell you is this: you're 13. This happens at your age. In fact, wait a few years. It gets worse. Teens and young adults suffer from knowing everything. They are invincible, too.

But what they learn, someday, is that they really don't know everything they think they know. You know? Know-it-all's are just that way. But everything goes in cycles and by the time you're say, oh--- 30, let's say -- you're going to see more and more people believing in things again. That's just human nature.

You're special, Amber. You're 13 and you still get it. You know that belief means hope and hope means happiness. You keep on believing.

And don't worry about everyone else. They will catch up to you.

-- Ed Zachary

Oh, hello, MerryCarey. I've heard about you! I hear you have quite the eye.

Yes, I'm sorry. The last time I edited my profile was six years ago. It appears I was a little outdated. I have updated those links for you. I apologize for being so silly.

You can click on them and read all about me. Then you can come back here and tell everyone how witty, intelligent and awesome I am.

I really don't mind.
