All of you are in our hearts and minds here at the United States Patriot Corps and we want to wish you and your families a Happy Thanksgiving. This year as things get back to normal after the COVID pandemic you should take time to count your blessings this Thanksgiving Day, as outdoor games and celebrations are in full force this year. Many people are traveling this year to be with loved ones that they have been apart from for over two years.
On Thanksgiving Day traditionally, the farmers thanked God for their autumn harvest. Thanksgiving Day is observed on the fourth Thursday in November. In 1863, Abraham Lincoln – the 16th President of the United States first declared Thanksgiving a holiday and an off day for workers.
Now on Thanksgiving Day normally, families and friends get together for a meal and celebrate the day with fun and games. The traditional meal of roast turkey, stuffing, potatoes, cranberry sauce, and pumpkin pie is a must.
However, you celebrate Thanksgiving this year take time to reflect on the things to be thankful for like your freedoms, liberty, family, and friends.
Here is a quote to ponder and reflect on. “Let us remember that, as much has been given us, much will be expected from us, and that true homage comes from the heart as well as from the lips, and shows itself in deeds.” – Theodore Roosevelt
