Thank you for publishing this beautiful sentiment from our first president.
In our house, we do have much to be thankful for.But my heart goes out to
the many who don't know how they will pay for shelter, food or medical expenses
and for those who've diligently spent months and months sending out resumes and
knocking on doors. My Thanksgiving prayer will be for you--that your
efforts will be fruitfulAnd, that we can bridge the political
divide, and urge our leaders to work together for the good of the country,
setting aside ideological differences.United we stand, divided we fall.
