Like the Queen of England has her yearly Christmas message, I thought I would do the same this year. It has been a year of highs and lows throughout the world. There have been atrocious acts of terrorism, as well as fantastic stories of love, hope, and perseverance. We've heard tales of wonder, and seen visions of utter devastation. We've lost many who were dear to our hearts, and watched as new faces are born.
As we look forward to the rapidly approaching new year, we each feel a mixture of excitement and trepidation over what is coming. On this special day, I hope that you and your family can celebrate the holiday season with a smile on your lips and tears of joy in your hearts. May you and yours have a very Merry Christmas!
