As much of the world celebrates Christmas our hearts go out to those who have little or nothing to celebrate this year. To those fighting overseas, to those who are sick and those who are spending their holidays caring for them; to those who are keeping us safe, those who have lost and those who have passed, and to those who are alone.
To those in Newtown CT whose pain and grief this nation bears, to the volunteer firefighter community in West Webster, NY and the greater First Responder community worldwide.
To those who lost so much in Hurricane Sandy and in Aurora Colorado, and to those who sought to provide relief. To those whose names never made the news, but suffered no less.
May the passing of this Holiday and the start of a New Year bring you comfort and healing and health.
