On October 3, 1789, George Washington, at the request of Congress, issued a Thanksgiving proclamation to be grateful for God’s benefits, and humbly to implore His protection and favor; and that we perform our relative duties properly and punctually.
True Thanksgiving and gratitude come from the heart and not from words. It is expressed in action.
So, as our government demolishes the freedoms which were bestowed upon the American People by Almighty God and maintained by the blood of patriots from the Revolutionary War to the present time, on this Thanksgiving Day, let us in gratitude, vow to fight to preserve them.
