A few years back, The Valley Sun ran this column. It’s a Christmas story about a child, but its message tells of the metamorphic change among a platoon of Marines and their realization that Christmas magic can exist in a wasteland. Personally, this experience clarified that the miracle of Christmas is the joining of this world with the next. I feel compelled to again tell the story.
