Today is America’s best celebration. Thanksgiving truly is for everyone. It is not part of any specific religious tradition; it is for all to enjoy. For this one day, we can cast aside worries about the future and focus only on the good things that have happened in our past.
I am thankful that I was born in a prosperous nation and have lived a long and generally pleasant life with the freedom to chart my own course. Through good and bad times, many people have supported and guided me. I appreciate all of them, especially Sandy, my beautiful wife.
I am thankful that my family does not want for food, shelter, or love. Today we will be together. That is the best thing of all.
