President Barack Obama on Thursday marked his final time lighting the National Christmas Tree with a wish that Americans will care for the sick, the hungry and the downtrodden this holiday season and treat one another as they would want to be treated.
The president said that message rounds out his family’s Christian faith, and that of Americans of all backgrounds.
“It’s a message of unity, and a message of decency and a message of hope that never goes out of style,” Obama said. “And it’s one that we all need very much today.”
