FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE                        December 21, 2006  

Release No. M-141-06






          Merry Christmas.


         This is one of my favorite times of the year, a time to enjoy the companionship of loved ones, to bask in the cheer and goodwill of the holidays, and to put aside our problems so we can greet the new year with renewed hope and optimism.


          But this can also be a poignant time.  For many of our neighbors, the holidays this year are a time of keenly felt separation as their loved ones serve our nation in places far from these island shores.  To them, I offer my prayers that peace and joy will someday prevail in those troubled lands, and that their sons and daughters, husbands and wives, brothers and sisters, will return safely to their homes and their families.


          And to all of you, may your Christmas be filled with all the joys that make this season special, and may God bless you and yours, always.


          Gail and I wish you a Mele Kalikimaka!
