Abraham Lincoln's Thanksgiving Proclamation | Thanksgiving 2020

As this year of turmoil is drawing to a close, it is a good time to use this holiday to look back on the time it was first made an official holiday in an attempt to draw the nation together during similarly troubled times.

As in every year, we should use this opportunity to reflect on all that we have lost this year, but also on being thankful for all that we have.

Furthermore, by reflecting on the context in which this proclamation was delivered, in the wake of the "new birth of freedom" that divine providence was seeing fit to bestow on us at that time to be thankful for, this should also be a great opportunity for looking forward to better days ahead.... rally 'round the flag, shouting the battle cry of freedom!!

Happy Thanksgiving, everybody!
