Happy Independence Day, Utah! Every year, our nation pauses to honor our humble, spiritual roots. Despite their differences, our founding fathers united to build a legacy of liberty and freedom that has stood the test of time. We hope to unite in the blessings of liberty and opportunity that have made America a light to inspire the oppressed and attract immigrants who have enriched our culture.
Today, Utah Attorney General Sean D. Reyes released the following statement to share his well-wishes for Happy Holidays:
“My wife Saysha and I would like to wish everyone peace and blessings this holiday season.
“To our friends like us celebrating the birth of the Savior Jesus Christ, to those friends observing the Festival of Lights and re-dedication of the Second Temple in Jerusalem, and to friends commemorating other special events or simply the renewal of the year, may you enjoy health, happiness, love, light, and prosperity in 2020.
“We want to express our particular gratitude to all of our men and women in uniform (military and first responders) and their families for their service and sacrifice in defending our nation, freedoms, laws, and our lives.
“And to all Utahns here and abroad, travel safely and enjoy the special time with family.”
Today, Utah Attorney General Sean D. Reyes and AG staff teamed up with the Unified Police Department for Operation Give Back! Instead of a ticket, people were given presents in honor of the holiday season.
Today as we gather with our families and reflect on the many blessings in our lives, Utah Attorney General Sean D. Reyes shares his well-wishes for Thanksgiving:
“On behalf of the amazing public servants with whom I’m privileged to serve, we wish everyone a safe and happy Thanksgiving.
“We’re blessed to live in this nation and thank all who serve and protect it. While we celebrate Thanksgiving, others in America and around the world are suffering from abuse, illness, addiction, depression, hunger, homelessness, as victims of crime, and in so many other ways.
“We pray for and wish them all measures of peace, comfort, and hope as members of our human family.”
