Thanksgiving Proclamations by U.S. Presidents
As we celebrate Thanksgiving in the United States today, we encourage all families to read (or re-read!) the two great Thanksgiving Proclamations from Washington and Lincoln and then do something with the feelings these speeches prompt in us. As one of American Heritage School’s recent graduates stated, “the education we receive…requires us to act. It is not enough for us to know principles. To be meaningful to us at all, they must work in us, change us, and from there they will change our families, our society, our communities, and even our nation” (Karina Hansen, AHS Class of 2012). Happy Thanksgiving!
