Dr. Widad Statement on Holiday Season

Dear supporters, colleagues and friends,

As we celebrate the Holiday Season with our families and friends, we think of those who are less fortunate or who have come into hard times. Whether battling a disease; going through persecution, wars or financial burdens; or trying to conquer stress or manage depression, finding a support network can make all the difference. Here is where kindness and caring can be demonstrated all over the world in different shapes and forms. By being kind and compassionate to those who are in pain or experiencing difficulty, we can foster a global community of compassion that will give hope to those who need it the most. Let’s remember them in our thoughts, words, and in our deeds.

The road to peace goes through compassion and hope. And as we prepare to say farewell to 2017, we thank you for your empathy and wish you success and happiness. Our ultimate goal is peace on earth! It is our hope that all peoples will evolve into believing that peace on earth will become a reality one day if we all work towards it together.

Personally, I have much to be grateful for as I reflect on 2017 and much to look forward to as we embark on 2018. Thank you!

Here is to a:

Happy Hanukkah!

Happy Yalda!

Merry Christmas!

Rewarding New Year!

Happy Sede!

Happy Maidyarem Gahmbar!”
