We are in the news business but even we sometimes want to turn off and tune out the constant prattle of hate- and anger-filled rhetoric that has become the norm these days.
The hustle and bustle of the holiday season — with Christmas and Hanukkah taking place at the same time this year — can be a much needed distraction from the everyday examples of people at their worst, both here at home and around the world, but it can also lead to us forgetting why we celebrate in the first place.
As you begin your Christmas or Hanukkah observance, EGP hopes you will take time to celebrate your blessings big and small. That you will remember that the KINDNESS you show another – who may not have as much as you – with words or a smile, can be the greatest gift of all.
There is nothing wrong with buying gifts or being excited by the presents you receive, after all, those purchases help keep people working. But our wish this Holiday Season is that you be GENEROUS and share some of your blessings – both material and spiritual – with those less fortunate.
Most of all, we wish you PEACE.
Peace from the hateful rhetoric and fear that has taken hold of so many lives. Peace from the anger that causes to act in ways that keep us from truly being present with our families and loved ones.
And we wish you the peace that comes from knowing that none of us are truly alone.
From all of us here at EGP, we wish you a holiday filled with kindness, generosity and peace.
