Easter marks the sacrifice of Jesus Christ and celebrates His triumph over darkness. Easter calls for dedication to duty, and considering the interests of others before our personal gains, as Jesus Christ taught us by sacrificing His life for all.
In this moment, I call on us all to be buoyed by hope, to pray and to work for peace in our land. Let us work together to build and uphold safe communities, where everyone is committed to upholding peace and harmony. Let us stand firmly together in common humanity, as we ask for the good Lord’s continued protection and blessings.
