Gov. Rick Perry today released the following statement regarding Christmas:
"As we celebrate the birth of our Lord and savior Jesus Christ, Anita and I wish a happy and blessed Christmas to everyone in Texas, and to Texans all around the world. May this holiday's message of peace and love touch the hearts of us all, and may those spending this holiday far from home feel the warmth of their family's love across the many miles. We ask that everyone keep in their thoughts those currently serving in our nation's military, and pray for their continued safety and well-being in the coming year, as they work to keep our nation safe and free."
