Thankful for H I S T O R Y today . 
Though history has brought its fair share of hurt // pain // injustice // tragedy // sadness , there are F A R too many things that have happened thus far to be T H A N K F U L for . 
Seen here below is a newspaper that my boy found in the crawl space of our house . 
Amongst many others of the same time period , I found it interesting we stumbled upon it now, being that Thanksgiving Day is upon us . This piece of H I S T O R Y , a proclamation from J F K for Thanksgiving Day , was printed the day after his death , November 23rd , 1963 . 
Crazy ? I think so . 
My  F A V O R I T E  part : 
| Yet , as our power has grown, so has our peril.  Today we give our thanks, most of all, for the ideals of honor + faith we inherit from our forefathers - for the decency of purpose, steadfastness of resolve + strength of will, for the courage + the humility which they possessed + which we must see every day to emulate .  A S   W E   E X P R E S S   O U R   
G R A T I T U D E , W E   M U S T   N E V E R   F O R G E T  T H A T   T H E  H I G H E S T   A P P R E C I A T I O N   I S   N O T   T O   U T T E R   W O R D S

W o w . I give thanks for those words alone . 
Happy T H A N K S G I V I N G , all .
