Gratitude, Not Grievance

Times Square, Trafalgar Square, Red Square, the Place de la Concorde, the Piazza San Marco. These famous squares have long focused the hopes, ideals, or history of the cities where they are found. Technology Square in Cambridge, Massachusetts, has an appropriately modern ring. But none is more timely than a square shortly to be completed in Dallas, Texas, and named Thanks-Giving Square.

In the chapel of this square individuals and groups will be welcomed to come and express, each in their own way, their gratitude to God by whatever name they call Him. And it is hoped to collect and focus here the Thanksgiving traditions of the world. So potent is gratitude, spiritually and scientifically understood, that, if every city possessed and fully used a Thanks-Giving Square of its own, many of today's pressing urban problems could soon be resolved.
