Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving!

What Thanksgiving wouldn’t be complete without Abraham Lincoln’s Thanksgiving Proclamation

               “I do therefore invite my fellow citizens in every part of the United States, …, to set apart and observe the last Thursday
of November next, as a day of Thanksgiving and Praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the Heavens. And I
recommend to them that while offering up the ascriptions justly due to Him …, they do also, with humble penitence for
our national perverseness and disobedience, commend to his tender care all those who have become widows, orphans,
mourners or sufferers in the lamentable civil strife in which we are unavoidably engaged, and fervently implore the
interposition of the Almighty Hand to heal the wounds of the nation and to restore it as soon as may be consistent with
Divine purposes to the full enjoyment of peace, harmony, tranquility and Union.” ~October 3, 1863
