We find ourselves in a special time of year. May these weeks be a time of reflection, peace, and appreciative togetherness for each of us. Let us remember the beautiful moments as well as the challenging ones, the moments of calm and the experienced tensions of recent times. Let us recall how much mutual respect, friendly support, and received kindness have helped us overcome many of the difficult things. Therefore, may each of us during this special time – regardless of our individual beliefs and traditions – feel the warmth of compassion in our hearts and extend it to those who need it most. Building upon that, may all that is yet to come bring health and well-being to us all, but above all, PEACE IN THE WORLD!
