“The holiday season offers the chance for people of all races, colors and creeds to set aside their differences and let tolerance and love unite them,” said STAND International Director Edward Parkin. “As Scientology Founder L. Ron Hubbard once said: ‘On the day when we can fully trust each other, there will be peace on Earth.’

“May each of us extend and earn that trust, so that peace prevails, starting with this holiday season.”
