Christmas time can be a time for family, friends, food, and celebration. But, for many, it can be a lonely time.

Below is a poem that a State Senator from my home town (his name is Daivd Knezek, he's a former Marine, and he's amazing!) shares every year, but I feel bears repeating. Because without those who protect our country and keep us safe, we may not have the comfort to celebrate. So, thank you, and a very Merry Christmas to all those who protect and serve our country!
