398 years have passed since the first Thanksgiving was celebrated at Berkeley Plantation here in Virginia. During those centuries, our nation and the world have witnessed dramatic changes. Although it can be tempting to take a pessimistic view or worry about the state of affairs, I personally believe we have much for which to be thankful!
As Americans, we are truly blessed. We live in a land of opportunity, where we are free to pursue "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness." This Thanksgiving, I am grateful for our nation and for the privilege of living and raising my family here. My heart is especially full this year, as Roger and I just welcomed our eighth grandchild into the world. From my family to yours, I wish you a blessed Thanksgiving!
Welcome Camden Isaiah Pogge!
