    Thanksgiving

    Thanks to the men and women who make it possible to live in a land of such prosperity and bounty. Happy Thanksgiving, to those who have served, and to those who can't be home for the holidays this year. I am thankful for you.

    The first Federal Thanksgiving proclamation was issued by President George Washington in 1789. Why would he issue that proclamation? He explained:

    "It is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and humbly to implore His protection and favor."


    "The American people have two peculiar festivals, each connected with their history and therefore of great importance in giving power and distinctness to their nationality. The Fourth of July Is the exponent of independence and civil freedom. Thanksgiving Day is the national pledge of Christian faith in God, acknowledging Him as the dispenser of blessings. These two festivals should be joyfully and universally observed throughout our whole country, and thus incorporated in our habits of thought as inseparable from American life."

    And thank you again from all of us to the vets and the servicemen who are keeping this country safe -- for we won't have a nice Thanksgiving gathering without your help.
