    The pilgrims held their first Thanksgiving

    At Plymouth in October 1621.

    The bitter winter of 1620, was over

    With a loss of many father, mother, daughter or son.

    Life for survivors was much better now

    As a good harvest improved what was rationed

    Settlers enjoyed good health and prosperity

    As homes were raised from the logs they fashioned.

    They walked unafraid and safely in the woods

    For they had made peace with the Indians.

    After the signing a long-lasting treaty

    Natives and Pilgrims shared the land as friends.

    Sending four men to shoot waterfowl and wild turkeys

    The Pilgrims decreed a holiday of good fortune

    A chief was invited who brought 90 braves

    And five deer to increase the portion.

    It was an open-air roast and festival

    Held along the north bank of Town Brook.

    Where there were games of skill, chance and dance

    While everyone gorged on the feast they cooked.

    From then on Thanksgiving spread through the colonies

    Though each region chose its own date.

    Till in 1789 President Washington proclaimed

    November 26 a day to give thanks and celebrate.

    The theme of Thanksgiving has always been the same.

    Though its date has changed many times.

    A day for giving and remembering the less fortunate

    Expressing thankfulness with our prayers, hearts and minds.

  2. Colonizers always want to remember and honor their brutal evil deadly history, but want to erase our history, removed Black History books, ban teaching Black History. But they teach it everyday and don't know, they live in the past and relive their brutal history everyday.

  3. Please pray for me this Thanksgiving. As a single mother things are difficult on me. My husband passed years ago I’m alone. I’m overwhelmed at times because both of my children are autistic. I’m struggling trying to support them and myself because like so many others. I lost my job as a social worker at Forsyth hospital because I declined the vaccine. I declined because of my pre existing health condition lupus and heart disease. I was denied my medical/religious exemption. I wish I could go back to the hospital but the mandate is still in place for hospitals that participate in Medicare and Medicaid. I’m waitressing and I’m so thankful to be working again, but I’m not making nearly enough to make ends meet. I get harassed and called names for simply asking for prayers, but prayers are all we need. Thankfully God gives me strength to keep going. I have faith God will provide. He HAS THIS FAR. WITH GOD ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE! Please pray for me and my children.
