Who Are We? A Thanksgiving Message More and more each day we are being rained upon with words from those who do not appreciate our country, and those who would like to see it become a different place than that which we were taught was our beloved United States of America. I am a Christian and I don�??t have any problem saying so! With that being said, I would like to point out some certain truths that our country was based on. The very first adventurers that came here to make a new home were the passengers on the Mayflower. They wrote the Mayflower Compact in 1620 which in part stated, �??Having undertaken for the glory of God and advancement of the Christian faith, and honor of our king and country, a voyage to plant the first colony in northern parts of Virginia,�?� etc. In 1863 Abraham Lincoln, in part said in his proclamation, �??I do, therefore, invite my fellow citizens to set apart and observe the last Thursday of November next, as a day of Thanksgiving and prayer to our beneficent Father, who dwelleth in the heavens,�?� etc. The Washington Monument includes a bible in its cornerstone. The Supreme Court has the Ten Commandments inscribed in four places. The Library of Congress, White House and Jefferson Memorial all have references to God. In the United States Capitol the declaration �??In God We Trust�?� is prominently displayed in both the United States House and Senate Chambers. This is also declared on our paper money. How much proof do we need to point out the need for God in our everyday lives and in our deeds? It is time to start looking at what our future holds and start thinking about why our past provided us with today and how we are going to prepare ourselves for the future. The infighting that is taking place in our country will lead to an unhappy future should it continue. It is time for our leaders to start thinking beyond their own personal future. I hope each and every one of you have or have had a Happy Thanksgiving. (complete quotes can be found on via google)
