TURNBULL OFFERS CHRISTMAS 2000 MESSAGE TO V.I.

Gov. Charles W. Turnbull offered a message of peace, joy, love, hope and unity to Virgin Islanders to mark Christmas 2000.
"While this might not be the best of times, we should take time and reflect on the many blessings that we have received especially during the holiday season," Turnbull said in a statement from Government House.
"Above all, the holiday season and the dawning of a New Year, century and millenium is a time of hope. For it is in hope for a better tomorrow for our children and ourselves that we all must live."
Turnbull called for peace in the territory and the world at large and noted, "Many of us can think of times past when there was a greater feeling of love for each other in this community."
"Unity as a people is our continuing task," he said. "Disagreements will come, but we can disagree without being disagreeable."
Turnbull asked that Virgin Islanders celebrate the season of lights by festooning houses and businesses with holiday lights.
