Obama's Easter Wishes

President Obama used his radio address Saturday to send Easter tidings to America. "On this Easter weekend, let us hold fast to those aspirations we hold in common as brothers and sisters, as members of the same family—the family of man," he said. As for his own family, Obama said they "will join other Christians all over the world in marking the resurrection of Jesus Christ" on Sunday. Obama called on Americans to "remember the shared spirit of humanity that inhabits us all—Jews and Christians, Muslims and Hindus, believers and nonbelievers alike" during the holidays. In addition to his Easter message, Obama highlighted the latest jobs numbers, which showed the highest growth since 2007, as evidence the economy was turning around.
