We also thank Americans at home who serve their fellow Americans in need of a helping hand
families who care for the sick, bring food to the hungry, and provide a loving home to children across the country.
This year, in the face of painful hardships, we have seen the incredible strength of the American spirit
neighbors helping neighbors, strangers helping strangers, and citizens reaching out for those in need.
We pray for the Americans impacted by the devastating storms and wildfires that struck our nation.
We mourn for the victims of the horrible shootings that stole so many innocent lives.
And we thank God for the police, firefighters, paramedics, and rescue workers who put themselves in harm's way to save others.
The people of this nation come from all different backgrounds, but we are all one people and one American family.
We all share the same heart, the same home, and the same glorious destiny.
