Thanksgiving: An American Tradition

Abraham Lincoln said :
“[It is] announced in the Holy Sciptures
and proven by all history,
that those nations are blessed whose God is the Lord…
It has seemed to me fit and proper that… [God’s blessings]
should be solemnly, reverently, and gratefully acknowledged,
as with one heart and one voice,
by the whole American people.”

So as I head to work on this holiday of Thanksgiving, I’ll be solemnly, reverently and gratefully acknowledging my thanks to God for my country and my freedoms.

I will also be thankful for our men and women serving in the armed forces and for the millions of people are newly able to embrace the freedoms that I take for granted every day.

I’ll also thank God for my family, our health, and for my wonderful profession and for the continuing ability to make a small difference in the world.

Happy Thanksgiving!
