Peace, Shalom, Salaam, to everyone...
"Please allow me to wish each and every one of you a peaceful and meaningful season of Holy Days. As most of you know, I've been in many parts of the world, and the one thing the decent people everywhere have in common is the desire for a peaceful life. Few people in the world actually get to live that kind of life, and those of us that do should always be thankful. And let us always remember those many men and women who serve us out there in the more perilous parts of the world, in harm's way, to make sure we can live peacefully."
"Onward and upward, my friends, for us all..."
