Expressions of gratitude towards God have been a tradition of Thanksgiving celebrations since the original gathering in Plymouth. As Americans, we have much to be thankful for. So many have sought the refuge and opportunity of our shores because they know that Americans have been blessed with the freedom to speak their minds, worship as they desire and pursue the American dream of a better, more productive and more fulfilling life for themselves and their families.
On this Thanksgiving like many others before them, we give special thanks for our men and women in uniform – past and present. We thank them for the many sacrifices they have made – including their lives – to protect and defend our American way of life.
May God bless you and your family on this day of thanksgiving.
