Orlando, FL December 25, 2015—The office of mystery novelist Digger Cartwright has released Mr. Cartwright’s Christmas message delivered on Christmas Day at the Thinking Outside the Boxe Symposium and Champagne Summit in Orlando. Mr. Cartwright was speaking at a luncheon for symposium participants and discussed the secularization of the Christmas holiday, conflict, materialism, self absorption, and charity.
An excerpt of Mr. Cartwright’s speech follows:
“Thank you all, Merry Christmas and God bless everyone. This is always a wonderful event, and I’m very honored to be here once again. To those of you have been here in prior years and heard me speak, thank you for coming back again. I think you’ll find my message is somewhat similar to before, but I feel that it is an important message nonetheless. To those first timers, welcome, and I hope you find something to take away from this event…
We live in a time of conflict, materialism, and self absorption. There is conflict among nations, conflict between religions and civilizations (whether anyone is willing to admit it or not), conflict between races, conflict between those who don’t respect the rule of law and those who wish to preserve it, conflict between those who have and those who don’t, conflict between political parties, and conflict within ourselves. Not all conflict is armed conflict or violent conflict. Much of the conflict is tension or restlessness or aggressiveness. Without doubt, this conflict can lead to unrest, anger, resentment, and ultimately violence.”
The full transcript can be found on all of Mr. Cartwright’s Social media outlets as well as his blog and website.
