Just in case you have never read a Presidential proclamation, here is the text for Thanksgiving Day, 2015. I learned something when I read it. Following this are two political cartoons for your amusement. Happy Thanksgiving to All!
THANKSGIVING DAY, 2015
- – – – – – -
BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA A PROCLAMATION
Rooted in a story of generosity and partnership, Thanksgiving offers an opportunity for us to express our gratitude for the gifts we have and to show our appreciation for all we hold dear. Today, as we give of ourselves in service to others and spend cherished time with family and friends, we give thanks for the many blessings bestowed upon us. We also honor the men and women in uniform who fight to safeguard our country and our freedoms so we can share occasions like this with loved ones, and we thank our selfless military families who stand beside and support them each and every day.
