Today, we reflect back on the birth of our democracy, to that memorable day in 1621 when the Plymouth colonists and Wampanoag Indians shared an autumn harvest feast, which is widely recognized today as the first Thanksgiving celebration in our country’s storied history. It wasn’t until 1863, in the midst of the Civil War, that President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed a national Thanksgiving Day to be held each November. Americans proudly recall the many shared blessings, not unique to many other nations, such as the right to vote, employment and freedom to worship. We are especially thankful for the many brave men & women who freely serve in our Armed Forces, who serve to protect our great nation’s unique freedoms while sacrificing their own comforts and safety. Their selfless actions are the greatest sacrifice, in not only protecting our freedoms, because they are a powerful reminder that their cause-our cause-is so much larger than themselves and is worth the ultimate sacrifice. We are mindful of the need and privilege to share our gifts with those in need. As Americans, we proudly and compassionately serve the less fortunate through word and deed. Let’s take a moment to remember the many blessings that God bestowed upon us and also remember the responsibility to ourselves and others as we enjoy Thanksgiving with our family and friends. We are thankful for our family and friends, customers, shippers, carriers, the many wonderful relationships through the years, good health and the opportunity to just say “Thank You,” for sharing who you are and what you do with your friends at Burns Logistics Solutions. Have a happy and blessed Thanksgiving Holiday!
