Never Give Up

Dec. 1, 2004

Just thought I would start a "holiday card" with my Editor's Note to wish all of you a very safe and happy holiday. Let's give thanks for all our blessings this past year and say a prayer for all our men and women that won't be at home with their families this holiday season; be it our servicemen and women, or our public servants like fire, police and EMS personnel.

If you are fortunate enough to be home for the holidays, take a few minutes, hug your family members, be happy, and above all, remember what this time of year is truly for. Isn't it wonderful; the things we have ... but sometimes take for granted? Happy Holidays to all of you and to those I have had the pleasure of meeting this past year.

Let me leave you with a quote from H.H. The XIVth Dalai Lama:

Never give up
No matter what is going on
Never give up
Develop the heart
Be compassionate
Not just to your friends
But to everyone
Be compassionate
Work for peace
In your heart and in the world
Work for peace...
And I say again
Never give up
No matter what is going on around you
Never give up

Here's wishing you and yours the very best!
Thank you for reading,
