Christmas

I know of no other religion where the world celebrates a season wrapped in love, hope, and joy. This Christmas may we be reminded to have child-like faith because

Merry Christmas to all.

John F. Kennedy,  “My fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you, but ask what you can do for your country.”
 
Martin Luther King Jr., “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.
