Just over 2,000 years ago a bright star shone in the East, and Christians believe it led, not just wise men, but everyday people to understand the dignity of and brotherhood of humanity.
Whatever your religious views, it is worthwhile to pause to appreciate the dignity of man and the value of peace — two ideas celebrated by religions throughout the world.
We have so much to appreciate at this time of year: Our families, country, and the fruits of our labors.
It is worth taking a moment to be grateful for all these things and rededicate our hearts to kindness, peace, and brotherhood.
Merry Christmas and
Happy New Year to you and yours!
