Special Wishes for the Season

            Christmas 2017 is upon us, and with it comes the wishes of peace on earth and good will to all.  This newspaper would like to single out a few special groups for mention, and ask that our readers think about them as well while you celebrate with friends and family.

            To all of the individuals and organizations who stepped forward during these troubled economic times to help make someone's Christmas a little brighter – a genuine "Thank You" for your heartfelt efforts.  The names and programs are many, as is the satisfaction and gratitude that comes from them.  To those who chose to get involved, you are part of what makes a community special.  

            In the spirit of the season, TV, radio and newspapers go out of their way to   deluge us with wonderful accounts of people doing good things for other people.  It does provide a level of hope for the future.  Too bad we can't bottle it and use it throughout the year.  There are many individuals and groups whose service won't end just because it's a holiday.  Many of them will stand on the line, teetering between tranquility and trouble on Christmas Day.   

            We wish a safe and quiet holiday season for all members of the United States Armed Forces serving throughout the world, especially those serving in harm's way.

            We wish for a calm Christmas Eve and Day for the nurses, doctors and others who will staff our health care facilities and ensure that care continues so others can celebrate the day.

            For the police officers patrolling the streets on this holiday, we sincerely wish that the biggest problem they face on Christmas will be finding a place that's open so they can eat their lunch.  May they also find a still moment to call their families, wish them a Merry Christmas, and remind them that they'll be home soon.

            To the emergency medical services personnel who will be on duty waiting to respond to a call for help – we hope that for one 24-hour period they never get it.

            To the volunteer firefighters, who stand ready to drop whatever they're doing and respond to a call for help from wherever they're at, a day to complete a meal with their families enjoy the company of friends.

            Whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanza or Milad un Nabi at this time of year, the staff at the Town and Country wishes a safe holiday season to all of our readers, and our fondest hope for happy 2018.
