Happy Thanksgiving

When the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth Rock in Massachusetts over 3 centuries ago,  little did they know how the Thanksgiving holiday would evolve.  Controversies have existed regarding their menu and when they actually celebrated the fruits of their harvest, but in my humble opinion, Thanksgiving is such a quintessential holiday.  Most of us will gather with family or friends to celebrate the day, and likely, the festivities will carry on through the weekend.

However, there are some who aren't as fortunate, so on this day to give thanks, let us be forever mindful that life's greatest pleasures come from helping those who can't help themselves.  Thanks to those who protect our freedoms and to those who dared to cross the ocean for the hope of a better life.  Happy Thanksgiving!
