Easter 2006

"He is not here; for He is risen, as He said."

Matthew 28:6

I send greetings to those observing the joyous holiday of Easter. On Easter, Christians around the world join together with family and friends to celebrate the Resurrection of Jesus Christ and the triumph of love over death. This is a season of renewal, a time for giving thanks and praise and for remembering that hope overcomes despair.

Christ's extraordinary sacrifice and compassion continue to inspire people around the world. His promise of new life gives hope and confidence to His followers. His service and love for His neighbors offer a profound lesson for all people.

During this Easter season, we celebrate God's gifts of freedom and justice. We pray for peace and ask for God's blessings on the brave men and women who wear our Nation's uniform and their families.

Laura and I wish you a Happy Easter.

Are Bush's holiday cards sent out at the taxpayers' expense? If so, then why?

What a twisting of the meaning of Easter? To support the military?

And a misuse of public funds when there is so much need in our country and world, especially with slashed budgest for the poor instituted by President Bush.

You can't be 65342 serious?!?
