As people across the world begin the festivities, my heartfelt greetings to everyone this Christmas. May Christmas and the New Year bring us all comfort, joy, and happiness.
May the New Year bring the world some much needed peace.
May those who are hungry be fed, may those who are lonely find companionship.
May those who are homeless find shelter and may those who are cold find warmth.
May those who are oppressed in the world find relief and may those doing the oppressing, those who are deaf dumb and blind to the anguish they are causing humanity, see the error of their words and their actions.
May the challenges, discomfort, tears and sadness of this year be replaced by all that is good for you and your loved ones.
