And Shows Itself in Deeds

much to be thankful for

“Let us remember that, as much has been given us, much will be expected from us, and that true homage comes from the heart as well as from the lips, and shows itself in deeds.”

-Theodore Roosevelt, Thanksgiving, 1903

And never forget on this day and everyday, paraphrasing Winston Churchill, we enjoy Thanksgiving because rough men stand ready in the night to visit violence on those who would do us harm. For them I am eternally thankful.

Happy Thanksgiving.
