President Bush's Christmas Message
President Bush (news
sites)'s Christmas message, issued Friday:
I send greetings to those celebrating Christmas.
During Christmas, we gather with family and friends to celebrate
the birth of our savior, Jesus Christ. As God's only son, Jesus came
to Earth and gave his life so that we may live. His actions and his
words remind us that service to others is central to our lives and
that sacrifice and unconditional love must guide us and inspire us
to lead lives of compassion, mercy and justice.
The true spirit of Christmas reflects a dedication to helping
those in need, to giving hope to those in despair and to spreading
peace and understanding throughout the Earth. As we share love and
enjoy the traditions of this holiday, we are also grateful for the
men and women of our armed forces who are working to defend freedom,
secure our homeland and advance peace and safety around the world.
This Christmas, may we give thanks for the blessings God has
granted to our nation and in each of our lives. May the joy of the
holidays renew our commitment to working together for a future of
peace, opportunity and hope.
Laura joins me in wishing you a Merry Christmas and a blessed New
GEORGE W. BUSH
