If you’re looking for some Thanksgiving morning reading, the Wall Street Journal, every year on Thanksgiving, publishes The Desolate Wilderness & And The Fair Land on their editorial page. The former was written in 1620 by Nathanial Morton of the Plymouth Colony and has all kinds of beautiful language people don’t use any more. The latter was written in 1961 by Vermont Royster. They should be read in that order.
Today, they also published a brief moving chronicle of the Thanksgiving of American servicemen in 1942 entitled An English Thanksgiving, 1942.
If you wanted a listing of what I’m thankful for – I’m afraid that if I was being honest and complete that post might never end. And I’m thankful for that.
