Dicken’s A Christmas Carol is the story of all our lives. We are all Scrooge. We are all Tiny Tim. All of us are all selfish and lame in some areas. We are all victims like Bob Cratchit, and we are all as indignantly moralistic as Mrs. Cratchit refusing to toast Scrooge. The Ghost of Christmas Past haunts all our lives; the Spirit of Christmas to Come beckons us all on to make the choices that will both enhance both our own existence and that of others.
