The First Thanksgiving by Jennie Augusta Brownscombe
We take time today to reflect on the many blessings we enjoy as citizens of this great nation, and wish the abundant bounties of this uniquely American holiday to each and every one of our readers.
Having just concluded a grueling political campaign season we are grateful for the election of a Republican president — Donald J. Trump — and his vice president, Mike Pence, along with GOP majorities in the House and Senate. The American people have spoken.
Do yourself a favor and read this inspiring Thanksgiving Proclamation by Revolutionary hero and our first President, George Washington, as he humbly asks “Almighty God” to bless this fledgling nation and her people.
