The holidays are upon us and things are tight all around, but it’s messages like this that help us keep things in perspective. The Obamas are addressing the nation in such a personable way that you will feel like having them over for dinner. This message, from their family to yours, will get you into the holiday spirit.
Just yesterday, they were being threatened by Al-Qaida and another guy was allegedly on his way from Baltimore to shoot the guy. The security for the newest first family must be making the President-elect feel quite at ease. Even his children seem to be taking it all in stride.

So before you sit down to your turkey next week and enjoy your gifts at Christmas remember what Barack said “We all have a stake in each other and something larger than ourselves.” Let’s go out there and share what we can: food, clothes, money, water, time. Whatever we have to spare at this time (and we know it isn’t a lot) is a whole world to someone else. Let’s try and hold up our end of the Presidency. Remember? Yes WE Can!
