What is Thanksgiving?

It is difficult for me to believe that there are grown men and women who have idea as to what “Thanksgiving” is all about.  I just saw one of those ‘street interviews’ that asked shoppers about the day and some didn’t even know what it was.  I must admit, this disturbs me.  How can an American not know what “Thanksgiving” is all about, after all, it’s only been around since the Pilgrims landed on our shores.  I shouldn’t be too surprised since these ‘man-on-the-street’ interviews seem to reveal just what people do not know and really don’t seem to be concerned that they do not know.  I remember, back years ago, when a teacher told me that he didn’t teach about the Civil War. I asked, “Why?”.  “Our youngsters don’t like war”, he replied. If other teachers determined to ‘pick-and-chose’ what they taught, it is no wonder that people have matriculated through our entire education program in total ignorance.  I’ve gotten pretty smart in my twilight years…I am totally Thankful, every second of every day for GOD and HIS provision.  Should I begin to write the things I am truly Thankful For, the list would reach from here to way, way out there, over and over, from North to South and then some, donchaknow.  To You and Yours, may I say, “Happy Thanksgiving”, from our house to yours!  That’s what I get from My Box of Chocolates!   AMEN
