“Thanksgiving is an opportunity to reflect on all the ways we have been blessed. We live in a safe, clean and caring community that is growing every day. We have access to quality education, jobs and health care. We have a roof over our heads, food on the table and the love of family and friends.
“Thanksgiving also is a time to remember the less fortunate and do what we can to help those who are hungry and homeless in our community. We also want to remember those who are grieving on this holiday: the family and friends of Lance Corporal Mike Scholl and all the soldiers who have lost their lives in Iraq, and the Nebraska Wesleyan community recovering from a tragic fire.
“As we enter the season of giving, I encourage everyone to be generous with their time, talents, donations and prayers. Happy Thanksgiving from my family to yours.”
