I saw a movie last night called "The Christmas Box" starring Richard Thomas (John Boy Walton) in which the question was asked, "What was the first gift of Christmas?"

Now I must admit that I am trying to take in as many Christmas movies as possible before the winter solstice because that is when we have scheduled our cable TV disconnect in an effort to balance our budget. I am unemployed, so pay-per-view television has become a luxury for our family, although this is not really the point on my comment.

To make a long story short, Richard Evans (from a novel written by Richard Paul Evans and played by Richard Thomas) was asked by Mary Parkin (played by Maureen O'Hara), what was the first gift of Christmas? We learn in the end, as Mary is on her death bed, that that gift was a child.

Hamilton has a stated vision: "To be the best place to raise a child." Graham's first wish is:

Have a fully articulated, communicated and actionable vision for Hamilton that serves as a touchstone and inspires all of its citizens, investors and potential citizens and potential investors to believe in Hamilton's current strengths and future potential; and to refer to that vision on a constant basis to make decisions and to assess progress and success.

Ho Ho Holy Christ H+H, we already have the first wish which dovetails nicely with the very first cherished gift of Christmas! Great movie by the way and one you won't wish to miss, if IT fits into your budgets.

Cheers
