The American Human Rights Council (AHRC-USA) extends its best greetings to everyone celebrating the holidays of this time of year. Merry Christmas, happy Hanukkah and happy Kwanza to all who celebrate these holidays.
This is a special time of family gatherings, sharing, giving, caring and celebrating. This is a time when we are reminded of the importance of family, friends and of the importance of giving.
We live in a world and in a country rich in diversity. The diversity of holidays, cultures and religions is to be cherished and celebrated. And despite all the conflicts, suffering and wars in the world, it is important to not give up hope and to celebrate these holidays. Despite all hardships and challenges, the human spirit perseveres.
We hope and pray that the year 2017 will mark the end of many if not all the tragedies in the world. We remain hopeful for the New Year.
“On behalf of the Board of Directors of the American Human Rights Council, I wish everyone happy holidays, “said Dr. Opada Alzohaili, AHRC Board President.
“We look forward to our continued work with all of our partners in the human rights community towards a world that respects human rights for all,” continued Dr. Alzohaili.
“This is the season to celebrate without forgetting the less fortunate among us,” said Imad Hamad, AHRC Executive Director. “We hope this holiday season brings forth a renewed commitment to protect and preserve human rights in the US and abroad,” continued Hamad.
