Montgomery Locals Nov. 22, 2017
It’s difficult to comprehend the myriad of hardships that the pilgrims faced when they landed in the new world. Originally headed toward Virginia, the Mayflower landed far off-course at Plymouth Rock, and the pilgrims were faced with a brutal winter that they were ill-prepared for. But their persistence, along with the help of local Indian tribes, are responsible for the groundwork of everything we hold dear today.
Our country is faced with political opposition today, but as the holiday season approaches let’s remember to give thanks for everything we have. As Americans we have freedoms and resources that are incomprehensible to billions of people around the globe. Let’s stop focusing on things that are going wrong, and start focusing on the things that are going right. Let’s resolve to put our best foot forward and build each other up. Let’s seek out the best in each other and remember what the holiday season is truly about.
THOT “Nothing is more honorable than a grateful heart.” – Seneca
