A Broader Look At Thanksgiving
Flash forward to today, we are giving thanks for what we have in a world where there are wars and contentions that have lasted centuries. To be more accurate, we should be giving thanks for having the things that we need as opposed to having the things we want. Or are we giving thanks at all? Maybe to a lot of us it is a day to overeat and watch football. To others it is a time to be with family, which is not a bad thing. Just as we should make an effort to remember the meaning of Christmas, we should also remember the meaning of Thanksgiving and the rich heritage that is contained in it.
And in closing, HAPPY THANKSGIVING!
Best of all is it to preserve everything in a pure, still heart, and let there be for every pulse a thanksgiving, and for every breath a song. - Konrad von Gesner
