Have a Wonderful Thanksgiving Day

All my warmest wishes to you on this Thanksgiving Day. I believe the following words are just as true today as they were when spoken in the late 1800s:

"Stand up, on this Thanksgiving Day, stand upon your feet. Believe in man. Soberly and with clear eyes, believe in your own time and place. There is not, and there never has been a better time, or a better place to live in."

---------------Phillips Brooks, (1835-1893), clergyman and author of the Christmas carol, O Little Town of Bethlehem (from The Quote Garden)
