Excerpt:Â I'm appalled at the way Americans have forgotten the meaning of Thanksgiving.Have you checked out what your children are learning about this holiday in both government and too many private schools? The Pilgrims had a rough time when they first landed on Plymouth Rock. Finally, the friendly native Americans taught the European plunderers how to fish and plant corn. The harvest feast held by William Bradford and the gang was a way for the Pilgrims to thank the Indians for saving their lives. Thus, Thanksgiving. In Seattle, recently, the school district suggested Thanksgiving should actually be portrayed as a time of national mourning!
As for me, Thanksgiving has always been one of my favorite holidays â€“ a time for family, a time for reflection, a time for feast and a time for praising God for all He has bestowed upon us.
