George Washington On Thanksgiving
November 24, 2011 |
Most of the news today is flooded with turkey talk and black Friday news, so finding any relevant news is a little tough. Hopefully everyone is enjoying a great holiday, and giving thanks for all the good things that they have.
George Washington’s Thanksgiving address should be a reminder to us all what this holiday should be about:
Now therefore I do recommend and assign Thursday the 26th day of November next to be devoted by the People of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being, who is the beneficent Author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be — That we may then all unite in rendering unto him our sincere and humble thanks — for his kind care and protection of the People of this Country previous to their becoming a Nation — for the signal and manifold mercies, and the favorable interpositions of his Providence which we experienced in the tranquility, union, and plenty, which we have since enjoyed — for the peaceable and rational manner, in which we have been enabled to establish constitutions of government for our safety and happiness, and particularly the national One now lately instituted — for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed; and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge; and in general for all the great and various favors which he hath been pleased to confer upon us. “
So mote it be.
