What a wonderful message! I'm an American and I find this short speech very inspiring. I usually spend my Christmas on the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco -- where people jump to their deaths an average of once per week. I pass out candy canes with a small message attached to it accompanied by a small gift card. It isn't anything of seeming importance. My goal (if you can call it that) is that someone who might be experiencing the pains that are often magnified by loneliness over the holidays might feel hope and know that they are loved. It isn't a giant leap of love, but I hope that it is a small step that might matter to someone (even if I never know). So, I've got my box filled with candy canes and gift cards and I'm about to head over to the bridge. Before I go, I'd like to wish anyone who is reading this a happy Christmas and a wonderfully blessed new year. God bless you!

"It is often small steps, not the giant leaps, that bring about the most lasting change." That's the word from my Queen. I will always remember such a remark from the most important person on earth.
