Christmas is a time for caring, sharing and giving, but I feel it should also be a time to recognize members of our communities who do things for others and go the extra mile to help those most in need.
We also need to applaud our police, firefighters and EMS workers, who do their best to save lives and property, not only during the holidays, but all year long.
Also let's not forget our brave men and women in the military who are serving our country and protecting us all. Please say a pray this Christmas that God will keep them safe as they do for all of us year round.
