President Obama and the First Lady used the President's weekly address (full text) last Saturday to extend wishes for a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everyone. In the address, the Obamas made special mention of military families, and the President also said:
For my family and millions of Americans, it’s a time to celebrate the birth of Christ. To reflect on His life and learn from His example. Every year, we commit to love one another. To give of ourselves. To be our brother’s keeper. To be our sister’s keeper. But those ideas are not just part of our faith. They’re part of all faiths. And they unite us as Americans.A video of the address is available online.
