President Issues Thanksgiving Day 2014 Proclamation

Yesterday the President issued the Thanksgiving Day 2014 Presidential Proclamation, officially proclaiming today as a National Day of Thanksgiving. The Proclamation reads in part:
With God's grace, this holiday season we carry forward the legacy of our forebears.  In the company of our loved ones, we give thanks for the people we care about and the joy we share, and we remember those who are less fortunate.  At shelters and soup kitchens, Americans give meaning to the simple truth that binds us together:  we are our brother's and our sister's keepers.  We remember how a determined people set out for a better world -- how through faith and the charity of others, they forged a new life built on freedom and opportunity.
