From the North Pole to the South Pole, and all points in between, I wish you a very merry Christmas wherever you may be.
Christmas reminds us that the gifts that we give and the gifts that we receive are truly special because each is an expression of kindness. We can always lift spirits in our personal lives and around the world when we first open our hearts to love, light, hope and peace.
In that spirit, it is my hope that you will also take a few moments today to acknowledge our men and women in uniform who are currently on duty and away from family. Their service on our behalf is also a gift. On this very special day, I wish you and your family good health and happiness.
