            Our islands and our nation welcome Christmas as a joyous and uplifting reminder of the triumph of faith, hope, and love over darkness and suffering.


            This day celebrates the birth of Jesus Christ and his message of brotherhood and goodwill.  It is significant that this message has reached every corner of the world, to lands far from the place of his humble birth.  It is gratifying that his words and his spirit live in the hearts of people of different cultures and myriad customs and languages.  And it is comforting that this celebration of his life continues to inspire people throughout an often-troubled world.


            May those of us touched by these blessings offer our hopes and prayers that the tradition of Christmas goodwill, peace, and brotherhood will be celebrated by all people, and that we let the spirit of the holidays guide our thoughts and deeds in all the days to come.


            Gail joins me in wishing you a Mele Kalikimaka.
