Abundance Of Food Typical Of American Way
James Dozier of the Weaving Department insi>ects a pen of fine
turkeys which by now’ are probably being prepared for someone’s
Thanksgiving Dinner. This abundance is typical of our American
Way of Life for which we can be tinily thankful.
You don’t need a bank-full
Of cash to be thankful,
Be thankful you have what you do.
Don’t envy your neighbors
The fruits of their labors,
Your fortune rests solely with you.
Here’s cause for Thanksgiving:
The fact that you’re living
Where freedom of enterprise reigns.
Where all can aspire
To what they desire;
Each welcome to what he attains.
If you have what’s needed
You can’t be impeded
By limits on courage and skill.
No blessing is greater;
So thank your Creator
And ask for His guidance and will.
One point to remember
(In June or November,
Or when you feel thankfulness most);
There’s no earthly power
Can dictate the hour
Or how you give thanks to your Host—L. S. S.
