HAPPY THANKSGIVING to all my countrymen and women….this is the one special American holiday where we look at what unites us, instead of what keeps us foolishly apart. This is the special feast where we celebrate being Americans….and try to remember what the Pilgrims sacrificed to help settle our country. I have been to Plymouth Plantation, and let me tell you, in Winter, which is when I went so I could see it at its “worst”, it is extremely cold and damp, with the winds blowing off the sea…it is absoloutely bone-chilling cold. But the spirit of the Pilgrims, where the first Thanksgiving took place, is what we celebrate on this day….the determination and will to create a good life amidst hardship, and the remembrance to give thanks, always, to our Creator, family and friends.
