I want to wish you and yours a Happy Thanksgiving holiday from my family and me. May the beginning of this holiday season be truly memorable!
We are blessed in so many ways, but there are many among us who are in need of assistance at this time. During this holiday season, let us all strive to do just a little more to help our family members, friends, and neighbors during their time of need.
In 1863, President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed that a day should be set aside to reflect on all our blessings. Lincoln saw reason for thanks despite trying times (the country was in the grip of the Civil War). Given the trying times that many in our country have faced this year (fires, floods, hurricanes, poverty, etc.), a day such as Thanksgiving is critically important for all of us.
