President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama on Saturday wished America a Merry Christmas and asked Americans to take some time to support the troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The Obamas, who are vacationing in Honolulu through the New Year, said the holidays are a time for family and friends to come together and to look out for those who are less fortunate.
This is the season when we celebrate the simplest yet most profound gift of all: the birth of a child who devoted his life to a message of peace, love and redemption,” the president said in his weekly radio address to the nation. He added, “A message that says no matter who we are, we are called to love one another—we are our brother’s keeper, we are our sister’s keeper, our separate stories in this big and busy world are really one.”
