Happy Thanksgiving

From the Patriot Post, George Washington puts it all in perspective:

"It is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence ofAlmighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits,and humbly to implore his protection and favors."

-- George Washington
(Thanksgiving Proclamation, 3 October 1789)

Reference: George Washington: A Collection, W.B. Allen, ed. (543)

Although I think football, turkey and family are important as well (not necessarily in that order).
