To the Editor:

It is that time of year when Americans count their blessings and engage in Holiday traditions – such as gift giving and receiving, family gatherings, and festive celebrations!   For many, enjoying family time during the season are absolute favorites.  I want to take a moment to wish each and every one of you a Joyous Holiday Season.  No matter how you celebrate, I hope that your time is filled with love, laughter, and celebrations of glad tidings.

Aside from the commercial aspects, the hustle and bustle and headaches of shopping and crowds, this is a time for thoughtfulness. While we tend to want to bestow blessings and gifts on those closest to us, let us not forget those who may be experiencing hardship. Please take time to think and do something for those less fortunate.   The holiday stress can sometimes be overwhelming. There are many ways to reach out, to show kindness and generosity!

No matter what you celebrate or how, please take time to look out for someone else.  Saint Augustine is quoted as saying,   “What does Love look like:  It has the hands to help others. It has the feet to hasten to the poor and needy. It has the eyes to see misery and want. It has the ears to hear the sighs and sorrows of men. That is what love looks like.”

I wish you a very Happy Holiday Season and a Happy Healthy New Year! May you be blessed today and every day in 2016!

N.C. Rep. Edward Hanes Jr. 

District 72,  Forsyth County
