LETTER | Festive wishes

SIR, – On Christmas night angels appeared in the sky with a message of ‘peace on earth, and good will to all men and women.’
A new life, a baby had just been born in a country that was under foreign occupation by a totalitarian government.
The promise of peace resonated with those who longed to be free from war.
More than 2000 years later the hope of peace on earth still eludes humanity.
Around the world, 65-million people seek refuge.
Our country and many others spend billions of dollars in defence material.
Conflict and terrorism affect many.
But the Christmas story, of the son of God visiting earth in the form of a baby does hold special meaning to many Australians – for that child grew up and his teachings affected the world by challenging people to think of others over themselves.
He reminded humanity that love, not hate, is the greatest expression.
And in doing so has brought peace to the hearts of many.
So among the presents, great Australian food and laughter, give some thought to the Christmas story, and within your busy life may you find some peace on earth.
Merry Christmas.
