“May the father of all mercies scatter light, and not darkness, upon our paths, and make us in all our several vocations useful here, and in His own due time and way everlastingly happy.” —George Washington, 1790
At the end of each year, I ask my editors and staff to take leave between Christmas and New Year’s Day in order to be with their families. Moreover, I want each of our team members to step back from the rigors of relentless daily deadlines so that they can begin January with fresh perspective on the most important news, policy and opinion.
As always, I will remain on the wall with our Managing Editor, Nate, keeping watch for any mischief by adversaries of Liberty. And our News Editor, Jordan, will be updating our Top Headlines section and Columnist/Opinion pages every day. Our regular editions will return on Jan. 4.
In keeping with this blessed Christmas season, I invite you to visit our Patriot Christmas page, which provides some insight on the history and current context for the celebration of Christmas.
It is my fervent prayer that on this and every day of the year, we turn to the Light of our Creator for wisdom and peace.
Pro Deo et Constitutione — Libertas aut Mors
Semper Vigilans Fortis Paratus et Fidelis
