Today we are celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ. The meaning of this celebration is to spread love and peace to every mankind. I pray and hope that the war that is going on in Syria and Iraq will end someday. My heart is bleeding to those Iraqi Christians who are being brutally persecuted and displaced from their homes by these so called terrorists and militants. I don't see any reason why Christians and other religions are being attacked since Iraqis whether Muslims, Yazidis, and Christians are living side by side in peace during the reign of Saddam Hussein and after his overthrow from power. Christianity is a religion of love and peace, this is the message of Jesus Christ to all mankind. For all countries who are celebrating Christmas, let us join our hands and pray for all Christians and non-Christians to live in peace and harmony. Merry Christmas to all!
