The Thanksgiving table groans under heaps of food, more elbows resting on it than it ever before, and the weight of heavy conversation catching up on the last year. The holiday scene painted in the minds of every American plays out differently for each family. Some open with the Baruch, some the Lord’s Prayer, and others with a call away from the Lions game. The expression is the same but the words and actions are different.
This is not only Thanksgiving, it is what the USofA is all about. The story of how we came to be such a people cannot be told often enough. It is a story of deliverance away from terror to a tough land that, in the end, always provides.
