President Abraham Lincoln was A brilliant statesman and
Superb human being who emancipated the whole nation ,
On October 3,1863 during the civil war he addressed ,
The Nation with these golden and profound words.
“”We have been the recipients of the choicest bounties of heaven.
We have been preserved these many years in peace and prosperity .
We have grown in numbers as no other has ever grown.
We have forgotten GOD .We have forgotten the gracious hand ,
Which preserved us in peace ,and multiplied and enriched ,
And strengthened us , we have vainly imagined .
That all these blessings were produced by the same ,
Superior wisdom and virtue of our own.
Intoxicated with unbroken success,we have been too
Self sufficient to fell the necessity of redeeming ,
And preserving Grace, too proud to pray to GOD That made us.””
For these reasons ,Mr.Abraham Lincoln concluded ,from that time
Forward we would celebrate thanksgiving day as a national holiday.
(( (( Wishing you happy and blessed thanksgiving.)) ))
