has been designated for Thanksgiv
W« shouldn't think of Thanksgiv
ing as a day of festivity but we
should show our gratitude by gfvinf,
thanks for our share with animals,
birds and other living beings, for the
fruitful soil, for sunlight and rain,
and for the mysterious processes ol
a vital universe. We shouldn't only
I be thankful for these but also for the
enjoyment we get, such as the radio,
telephone, use of electricity, and
■ many other inventions that we didn't
have when the Pilgrims landed on
Let ns also give thanks for the
freedom we have—such as, political
freedom, freedom of church, freedom
of thought, and freedom of speech.
For the coming year let us think oi
Thanksgiving as a day for giving
thanks instead of a day of festivity,
