Every year, the world’s newspapers list different issues that divide us. The issues change from year to year, but on December 25th, many of us focus on a simpler, different message. A message that offers unity, peace and hope.
This message is as timeless today as it was in that tiny Bethlehem stable, over two thousand years ago deemed so important that our western calendar was re-set to acknowledge it. Jesus was born so that we all have access to a fulfilling life. While to some, Christmas means jammed malls, internet shopping, or festive, colorful decorations, Mei Mei and I look back to the true significance and meaning of Christmas.
The birth of Jesus provided the greatest gift to mankind. From our house to yours, we wish you a very merry Christmas, and a prosperous New Year!
Senator Bob Huff (ret.) and Mei Mei Huff
