The Thanksgiving season is upon us. But as we confront the challenges our country faces, many Americans may not feel like giving thanks. Instead they may feel overcome with anger or fear.

Despite the harrowing times we now face, we must celebrate Thanksgiving Day with full hearts and remember the promise of Godís protection ó something another historical life-and-death struggle reminds us of so well.
