Abraham Lincoln began the tradition that we carry on today during the midst of the Civil War.
And it feels like our nation is almost as divided today, 
I think our culture tends to ignore or forget to whom it is we give thanks.  Lincoln called for a day of 'Prayerful Thanksgiving'.
So let's give God thanks for all we have and for each other.....and as Tiny Tim said;... "God bless us, everyone!"

Have a blessed day
