Somos Primos December 2016
Please cut and paste:

Although the sun is shiny brightly and my home is at peace, December 7th, 1941 is very much in my mind. I recall my feelings, 75 years ago, as an eight year old child hearing the family talk of a world conditions which seemed to be spinning out of control.

As a nation we have so much for which to be grateful, our lands are still producing and our buildings are still standing. Although natural disasters have added much to the world’s current needs, in much of the world the increasing conflict is sadly based on religious differences. Social forces pushing from all directions.

I recently received a copy of the first Amendment to the US constitution. I also recently heard a non-Christian radio caster , who said that even though he was of a different faith, he eagerly joined in the celebrations of Christmas . . . . because it was a traditional American holiday of spreading love and peace.

Amendment 1 to the Constitution: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the exercise thereof, or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press, or the right of the people to peaceably assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievance.

Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me. . . .
I wish you all a very Merry Christmas
