Here's wishing all Americans a happy Thanksgiving Day as you gather at your tables with family and friends to celebrate the many blessings of freedom and liberty we enjoy in our country.

From this household we send along our special thanks to the men and women in uniform, here at home and overseas, and especially to those fighting the global war on terrorism in far away Afghanistan and Iraq. Your courage and your sacrifices are bringing freedom to millions and your hard fought battles eradicating terrorism, making this troubled world of ours safer. We thank, too, the families of our soldiers, sailors, and Marines, and pray that they are soon rejoined with their loved ones in uniform.

Most of all, this family asks for God's blessings and guidance for our nation's president, vice president, secretary of state, and secretary of defense, and all those who serve us at the highest levels of government during this time of war. Give them respite this day from their worries and burdens and touch their hearts, minds and souls with Your divine wisdom, Oh Lord.
