As we gather with our families and friends on Thanksgiving, let us not forget the many Americans who are serving our country overseas and spending the holidays thousands of miles away from their loved ones. It is due to their sacrifices, and the sacrifices of those who served before them, that we as Americans continue to enjoy our many freedoms and live in a country that remains a beacon of hope to the rest of the world. Let us also take the time to reflect on the importance in our own lives of helping others and rededicate ourselves to doing so in the future. May you all have a very safe, healthy and happy Thanksgiving!
