The story of the Exodus is a story of freedom.
It is the story of an incredible people who were liberated from oppression and raised up the face of humankind.
Down through the centuries, the Jewish People have lived through one persecution after another
and yet, they persevered and thrived and uplifted the world beyond measure.
And now, the State of Israel stands as a monument to their faith and endurance.
Another day of faith and celebration is also upon us.
This Easter Sunday, Christians celebrate the resurrection of Christ and the promise of eternal salvation.
It is a holy day of reverence and worship;
it is a sacred time that fills the spirit of our Nation with the faith of our people.
America is a Nation of believers.
As families gather in houses of worship across the Nation,
we are grateful for the tremendous blessings of this land, our home.
We have a beautiful country, an abundant countryside, and an amazing people with a truly bright and wonderful future.
