Our nation is unsettled in this Christmas season. Incomprehensible things are occurring in Washington under a Biden administration seemingly bent on undermining our constitution and the values by which we have traditionally lived.
But, nevertheless, at this time of year, the nation perseveres to celebrate a miraculous event 2,000 years ago.
Recall that the Spanish Flu epidemic created turmoil at Christmas 1918. People suffered through mask mandates and lockdowns. Merchants, eager to cash in on holiday gift buying, fretted that their supply chains wouldn’t hold up. Perhaps the best symbol of that year was the Ohio state health commissioner warning: “Beware the mistletoe.”
Still, the people endured. They celebrated Christmas.
So let us ignore the mean-spirited rhetoric blowing from the White House today and, again, look back a century ago. In his 1922 Christmas message to the country, President Calvin Coolidge promoted hope for our country on this holy day.
When the first Christmas came to mankind it … established the foundation of the civilization of the Western world. Through all the shifting changes of more than nineteen centuries this revelation has remained, constant, unshaken, secure…. Persevere and go forward, obedient to the divine instruction: ‘Be ye constant in well doing.’ That way lies our promised peace and good will of which the angels sang with joy as they beheld the miracle of the first Christmas. The mission of America is to make that vision a reality.
“Fear not!” The Bible repeats this 365 times. It is a good admonishment for us as we move into a new year.
Merry Christmas to you and yours from all of us here at Judicial Watch, and a happy New Year.!
