Thanks for proclamation

We would like to thank you for printing President Abraham Lincoln’s Oct. 3, 1863, Thanksgiving proclamation on Thanksgiving Day! It was a wonderful reminder of what Thanksgiving is really about: taking time to give thanks to God for the abundant blessings he has given us, both individually and as a nation.

In a society of increasing hostility toward any mention of God, and the tremendous emphasis on Black Friday and all that entails, reading this on Thanksgiving morning was like a breath of fresh air! Thank you so much!
