Pioneer Thanksgivers

Each Thanksgiving Proclamation by the President of the United States of America bears witness to the fact that pioneers who are thanksgivers produce standards for posterity. Indeed, the meekness which bows the heads of rugged pioneers shows recognition of divine power. It was the realization of their dependence upon God for supply that inspired the Pilgrim pioneers to give credit to Him for their harvest; and their spiritual motives saved them from the snare of believing that they had only their own efforts to thank for their first harvest.

Spiritual motives bring freedom. And to the degree that a movement is truly progressive, its founders belong to the whole of mankind instead of to a given class or nationality. All thinkers are grateful for the pioneers of freedom.
