AMAC Magazine - Volume 17 / Issue 6 - NOV/DEC 2023

Dear AMAC Member, We hope you enjoy this issue of your AMAC Magazine! We are delighted to provide you with a profile of each of the presidential candidates and where they stand on the issues. As we look ahead to 2024, we are ever hopeful that our country will return to strong leadership. During this season of Christmas and Chanukah, we are reminded that hope never fades. Like millions of Americans, I was shocked and horrified by the brutal attack Hamas inflicted upon Israel on October 7  murdering innocent men, women, and children. I am heartbroken and saddened by the ongoing conflict in the region, and I join millions of people around the world as we pray for the families in danger and for every person who has lost a precious loved one. In the midst of such tragedy and pain, we are reminded of the strength and resilience of the Jewish people. Since the times of Moses, the Jewish people have faced persecu- tion, marginalization, and even the threat of extinction. Yet, through God’s grace, the Jewish people have not only persevered  they have built up an oasis of culture, science, innovation, and promise in the middle of the desert. From a speck of sand, Israel has become a garden of hope  a constant reminder that our fate is never determined by our enemies, but by the faith and courage of our people. That is why any time I am tempted to give in to despair  to worry about the future and the trials we must confront  I think of all the incredible men and women of AMAC. I think of your lives of service, especially in many unnoticed ways. You take care of your families. You give unreservedly to your communities. You love our country  and you will do anything to keep America strong and free. I also think of the brave men and women who fight to keep us safe. I am grateful to the members of the military and law enforcement. We can sleep soundly at night because of those who selflessly stand guard for our safety and peace. Above all, I remember the gift we Christians celebrate during this season. Some 2,000 years ago, a baby boy was born. Jesus Christ, the only begotten son of God, entered the world not through regal circumstances or fanfare. He was born in a stable, wrapped in swaddling cloth, and laid in a manger. The book of Matthew recounts, “Behold, the star which they had seen in the east went in front of them until it came and stood over where the young Child was.” The star is here. Jesus has come to save the world. Rejoice. Christ is our everlasting hope. May we never lose sight of God’s greatest gift to the world. From my family to yours, I wish you a Merry Christmas, Happy Chanukah, and a Joyous New Year! LETTER FROM THE EDITOR
