We hope this brief reflection finds you well.
Marile and I join you and our fellow Americans in observing Presidents’ Day — as we salute the sacrifice and leadership of all those who have held America’s highest elected office.
We commemorate the exceptional legacies of Presidents Washington and Lincoln — both led our country during extremely difficult periods; in turn shaping our nation — into the pillar of democracy, liberty and justice for all — we so enjoy today.
Marile, the kids and I said a special prayer today, for all in public service — federal, state, and local — whose personal sacrifice and dedication helps to ensure that our values are well represented and protected.
“We asked for the Lord’s protection and guidance for all who devote themselves to the common good, working for justice and peace at home and around the world.”
May the Lord watch over, protect and bless these United States of America with great leaders equal to the challenges of their distinguished office, and may our nation never lose sight of the accomplishments of presidents past. Finally, we pray —
“Heal us from our differences and unite us, O Lord, with a common purpose, dedication, and commitment to achieve liberty and justice in the years ahead for all people, and especially those who are most vulnerable in our midst. Amen.”
As always, thank you for taking the time to reflect with us … we cherish your friendship and continued support.
Have a safe and relaxing holiday weekend.
Warmest personal regards,
Marile & Jorge Luis Lopez, Esq.
