To everyone at AR15.com, May you and your familes have a Happy Thanksgiving. We all have alot to be thankful for this year. I'm not trying to bring anyone down, but think about all the US Servicemen and women we have out in foreign lands who are fighting the good fight away from their families. I think about that and say thanks. The thousands of victims families of the World Trade Center, Pentagon, and doomed airline flights will be having an especially tough Holiday season. I've said countless prayers and continue to do what I can to help. Let's not forget about them this Holiday Season. With that being said, I hope everyone chows down on turkey, watches the football games, enjoys your days off and realizes how lucky we are to be [b]Americans![/b] Sincerely, Ray [usa]

A Thanksgiving Prayer Heavenly Father we give you our praise, For your bountiful blessings which sweeten our days, For the bold blazing patchwork of the bright autumn leaves, For each step that we take and each breath that we breathe, For the soft breeze that whispers and the ocean that roars, For the hummingbird’s shimmer and the eagle that soars, For the tall stately mountains that are older than time, For the vast waving grain fields and the fruit of the vine, For the thunder and lightning and the tempests that rage, For the wonder of childhood and the wisdom of age, For the shimmering cities with their millions of lights, For the hamlet, the village and the wonderful sight Of a storm in the making bringing life giving rain, A late summer sunset or the moon on the wane, For the luscious green forests all tangled and wild For the love of a woman and the trust of a child, For the loyal policeman who stands in harm’s way, And the brave men and women who day after day, Are the keepers of freedom the bearers of arms, Who watch and protect us and keep us from harm, For the fireman who goes where no other would dare, For the doctors and nurses and the people who care, For the sick and the needy and those who are kind, For the homeless, the hungry, the lame and the blind, For the tellers of tales and the singers of songs, And the old man who passes his knowledge along, For a child’s giddy laughter at a birthday surprise, And the soft tender wonder in a new mother’s eyes, For the clean virgin beauty of the new fallen snow, For the vast sandy deserts where the wild west wind blows, For my Tennessee valley in the cold morning fog, And the unfettered love of a faithful old dog, For the late April buttercups in golden bloom, And the silvery fullness of an October moon, For our little brick church and the songs of the choir, For the snuggly comfort of a warm winter fire, But most of all Heavenly Father above, For the blessings of mercy, forgiveness and love And of all of your sweet gifts the most precious one, Is the wonderful glorious gift of your Son. No words can describe the supreme awesome cost, That you paid for the souls of the wicked and lost, So now as we pause and look back through the year, With our bountiful table and our loved ones all near My cup runneth over as I humbly pray to my Lord and my Saviour on this Thanksgiving day. God Bless America Charlie Daniels

God Bless America! And I'm thankful most of all that the death rate at the World Trade Center was not nearly as high as I first imagined. I'm thankful that the Red Cross has come to its senses about where the money collected for the families of the Sept 11 attacks should go! I'm thankful that there have been very few deaths or casualties of American servicemen in the War on Terror in Afghanistan! Two or three are still too many, but a whole lot less than the naysayers were predicting! I'm thankful that we haven't overreacted to the Anthrax situation. Yet. I'm thankful for my family. I'm thankful for you guys. Eric The(Thankful)Hun[>]:)]

God Bless Everyone from this great country of ours. God Bless Everyone from this great country of ours. Ray was correct when he said that we are lucky to be Americans. We need to take some time this Holliday season to thank the men and women that keep our freedom. A special thought and thanks to the men and woman who have given the ultimate sacrifice past, present, and future. Hope everyone has a great Holliday...remember, hug that special someone. medcop [USA]

This year I have mixed feelings about Thanksgiving. I'm sad for the families that will have to spend the holiday without the loved ones they lost September 11th, and for the men and women who won't be able to spend the day with their loved ones because they're overseas helping to make sure that the animals who did this are punished. On the other hand, I'm happy to see how are country has come together as one again. I'm proud to see that many folks have rediscovered just how grat it feels to be an American again. I'm also happy to have made some new friends. Ray, you and the others deserve all my thanks. Lastly, damn I'm glad Bush won! [:D] Happy Thanksgiving from Texas.

Well guys and gals, I'm off for my Thanksgiving Holiday. I wish you all a very happy holiday, and I hope you will all have the opportunity to spend precious time with your friends and family. You never know when they may be taken away from you. I'd write a list of what I'm thankful for, but I can't even begin to do that. God Bless you all, and please, stay safe. -Chimborazo

Thanks Ray! I as well wish every brother and sister on the forum a Happy and Blessed Thanksgiving Day. As many Americans are away from their families in service to our country I say a special "thank you" to them and to their families. Our service men and women represent the strength, courage and resolve of our country and without them this war would be hopeless. Additionally, to all those who lost loved ones in the attacks, who sit at tables today with empty spaces......my heart and thoughts are with you. Perhaps, even as we are in the midst of crisis and uncertainty we can all reflect on how truly fortunate we are. God Bless You All!
