Greetings from the Joaquin Castro Campaign Family

Dear Friends,
In the fall of 1843, Tiny Tim, Ebenezer Scrooge, and Bob Cratchit were conceived in the imagination of Charles Dickens as he walked the streets of Manchester and London, wondering about the anonymous lives in his midst, how to extend the spirit of the Christmas season throughout the year and to offer the warmth of a little sentiment to take the edge off of cynicism’s chill.

During these walks Dickens also fathered The Ghosts of Christmases Past, Present and Future to remind us of the gift of redemption, our responsibility to each other and our power to do good on this earth. All of these characters would be born and given eternal life in the pages of, “A Christmas Carol.”

Peace on earth and goodwill to all shouldn’t just be Christmas season wishes but ideals we seek in each season of the year.

Let there be no room in our inns for hatred and prejudice but allow that homeless child named Hope to always find shelter within the mangers of our hearts.

Our yuletide wishes for you is that your Ghosts of Christmas Past bring you memories and smiles; that the Ghost of Christmas Present shows you what’s truly important and gifts you with a joy that endures; and that the Ghost of Christmas Future, heralding peace and goodwill to all, is no longer an elusive phantom but something real that we can see and feel.

All of us from the Joaquin Castro for Congress family, beginning with Joaquin, wishes each of you the Merriest of Christmases and the Happiest and Safest of New Years.
