" m By Congressman Nick Rahall Christmas, the season of hope and cheer is upon us, yet our hearts are heavy this year because of the recent tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut, that robbed so many families of their cherished little ones and our nation the sanctity of youthful innocence. "Suffer the little children unto me," Christ commanded. We can take comfort in the thought that these taken all too early from the bosom of their families, now reside in the loving embrace of the Kingdom of Heaven. It is for us the living to find and renew the hope and happiness so authentic and ready to burst in young minds and hearts as Christmas day nears. No .where can we find a better guide to the comfort and joy of life than in the story of shepherds tending their flocks one dark night illuminated by a bright star so long ago: "For unto you is born this day in-~ the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord," said an angel of the Lord. "And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men." Three wise men will also take their place in nativity scenes and re- enactments in churches and on stage throughout our country; their visit gives added meaning in the Christmas Story. These three recognized leaders took the time, effort and expense to pay honor to a new born babe. I have often wondered if their visit did not complete a central idea behind the gift of the Christ child in the first place, that it was a gift for all. 2012 Summers County K.I.D.S Scholarship Awarded John Gill, once known as "that little guy with the big voice," was awarded a Summers County KIDS Scholarship at the HAF Scholarship Banquet on May 24, 2012 by keynote speaker Richard Lawrence. As a member of the KIDS, John wowed audiences with his amazing vocal talents. His most memorable roles included the Ugly Duckling in "HonkP' Jack in "Jack and the Giant," the Tinman in The Wizard if Oz," and Joseph in "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat." He was also the unforgettable soloist for many other musical presentations, especially the KIDS rendition of "American Tears." Mr BI im From simple shepherds, who were called from their daily chores, to the wisest, who possessed great wealth and travelled from afar, all were called to the crib side of this child. As Christians each Christmas, we celebrate the gift of the Lord's only son he so freely shared with each of us. It is the gift of promise and hope, of sharing and caring and, most of all, one of giving freely. We reflect the story in scripture by giving gifts to family, friends and those in need. We also give to our Nation in service and sacrifice. We are blessed to live in this land of the free. And despite the best efforts of Madison Avenue's advertisers to turn the gift of Christmas, of that Holy Night, into some super holiday season shopping spree, we have a job to do. It is incumbent upon Christians to exercise our God given freedom to share his gift and message from pulpits and choir lofts to Main Street and our public squares. As a Nation, the moral compass that has guided us thus far was shaken, but not shattered, early last Friday morning. We woke Saturday morning to a changed Nation. As Americans, one and all, the task before us is clear. We must recoup the lost innocence of our children, make safe their daily deeds and restore their sweet dreams. This Christmas Season need not be cast in the shadow of the lost soul who stole so much from families and our country's fabric. Let us as Christians share the gift of this season with families of all faiths. Let us share with young and young at heart the ballad of the "Little Drummer Boy." That what the Almighty expects to hear from each' of us is that we have played our"best for Him." Surely, He will smile upon us and heal our land. May the good Lord's work here on Earth continue through your daily devotion to families and their lives. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all! U.S. Rep..
