As the eve of Thanksgiving draws to a close and we prepare a feast of favorite foods tomorrow, let us remember the pilgrims who celebrated that first holiday. They were the founders of many of the freedoms we still have today.

Conditions were atrocious that first winter but their focus was on what they had. Perhaps many of us could take a page from their book.

As you enjoy your feast with those you love, remember to thank the men and women who are not able to be with their families because they chose to ensure our freedoms here at home.
