Merry Christmas from KaTom

One of the perennial joys of this season is the reminder that, however unlikely it may seem at times, peace is possible. Christmas has the power to stop wars, or at least put them temporarily on pause. It has the power to bring together people of all stations and of all nations in hope that a brighter tomorrow is possible. It has the power to remind us the peace we experience throughout the year is equal to the peace we’re willing to work to create.

May the words of “Let There be Peace on Earth” remind us all that if peace is to be, it’s up to each of us to create it. May we each make that “solemn vow” in 2017, “To take each moment and live each moment in peace eternally.”

Merry Christmas from all of us at KaTom.
