Prayers And Blessings Of Thanks
November 24, 2011 by staff
“Together, we can and should find common ground to empower small businesses and remove government barriers that make it harder to create jobs,” said Rep. Sandy Adams, R-Fla. “Together, we can and should find common ground to deliver a government that honors the voice of the people.”
Adams, a first year House member, said the nation’s prayers this Thanksgiving should also include the “less fortunate, especially the millions of our fellow citizens who are out of work.”
“We also keep faith with families marking the holiday without their loved ones who are serving in uniform,” Adams said. “As Americans, we not only count our blessings — we share them with those in need.”
The Republican Thanksgiving address:
“Hello, I’m Sandy Adams. I have the great honor of representing Florida’s 24th Congressional District, which is home to some of America’s greatest treasures, including the Kennedy Space Center and Daytona International Speedway.
“This week, my family, like yours, will take part in one of America’s oldest and most cherished traditions — a day of thanksgiving. It’s a time to catch up with one another, enjoy great food, and wish peace and grace for all.
“In our prayers we include those less fortunate, especially the millions of our fellow citizens who are out of work.
“We also keep faith with families marking the holiday without their loved ones who are serving in uniform. As Americans, we not only count our blessings — we share them with those in need.
“Fellowship is an important element of our national character. It may well be the first element, too.
“To realize their dream of freedom, the Mayflower settlers had to endure an unforgiving winter with few provisions. To survive, they had to lend a hand to one another. With every crop they planted, and every house they raised, a ‘shining city on a hill’ was being built. Those settlers understood what we do now, that there is no substitute for the compassion and determination of a free people.
