A Special Thanksgiving
- posted: Nov. 23, 2020
Thanksgiving, as a national holiday, was first celebrated in the midst of the Civil War. Its date was changed in the midst of the Great Depression. Thus, through a war of insurrection, two world wars, economic hardship, and even a pandemic, we have, as a nation, found reasons to give thanks.
This year we celebrate Thanksgiving separated: our expression of love for friends and family given through sacrifice to keep them safe. This year we celebrate in uncertainty.
Yet, reasons to give thanks remain, as they did in 1863 and 1918, and 1939.
May we all find ways to gather by phone or internet or socially distanced activities to rejoice in and gain strength from friends and family. May we all be well.
