PRESIDENT RONALD REAGAN: “Tonight, in millions of American homes, the glow of the Christmas tree is a reflection of the love Jesus taught us. Like the shepherds and wise men of that first Christmas, we Americans have always tried to follow a higher light, a star, if you will. At lonely campfire vigils along the frontier, in the darkest days of the Great Depression, through war and peace, the twin beacons of faith and freedom have brightened the American sky. At times our footsteps may have faltered, but trusting in God’s help, we’ve never lost our way.
“We are blessed with a freedom and abundance denied to so many. These blessings bring with them a solid obligation, an obligation to the God who guides us, an obligation to the heritage of liberty and dignity handed down to us by our forefathers and an obligation to the children of the world, whose future will be shaped by the way we live our lives today. As Charles Dickens said so well in ‘A Christmas Carol,’ ‘God bless us, every one.'”
CONGRESSWOMAN LIZ CHENEY: “From my family to yours, Merry Christmas.
“I’m Liz Cheney, and I approve this message.”
