Abraham Lincoln !/ Thanksgiving ! / God .

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.))  ))
