Give Thanks For Our Nation’s Blessings

Thank you for the great honor of continuing to serve the people of the 5th District in the United States Congress. As a nation, we have much to be thankful for and as we come together with family and friends this Thanksgiving, I hope you will join me in recognizing the great blessings we enjoy as Americans. I wish you a Happy Thanksgiving and thank our service men and women both at home and abroad who continue to bravely defend the freedoms we hold so dear.

Our nation has faced many challenges throughout its history, and while we continue to face new challenges today, we must remember and honor the sacrifice and dedication of those who have come before us to preserve the freedoms and the blessings that uniquely have made us the freest and most prosperous nation in the world.

The sacrifices that were made in the founding generation and the sacrifices that have continued to be made throughout the generations to preserve our way of life are profound. And those liberties we are so thankful for today have everything to do with our nation's history and the great Americans that have paved that history.

As we work in Congress to address the challenges we face of returning to our founding principles in order to get our economy back on track and restore the path to prosperity, I am driven by the precedent set by those men and women who have established and preserved this great nation and its freedoms and mindful of the importance of leaving this country better off than we found it.

It is a great honor to once again be able to serve the people of the 5th District and, as your representative, I remain committed to addressing the pressing issues we face now so we may preserve this great nation, and its liberties and opportunities, for our children and grandchildren.
