Not really much of an artistic post here, but one for the holiday today.
This is the Thanksgiving prayer speech that Linus Van Pelt gave in the 1973 television special “A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving” –
In the year 1621, the Pilgrims held their first Thanksgiving feast. They invited the great Indian chief Massasoit, who brought ninety of his brave Indians and a great abundance of food. Governor William Bradford and Captain Miles Standish were honored guests. Elder William Brewster, who was a minister, said a prayer that went something like this: ‘We thank God for our homes and our food and our safety in a new land. We thank God for the opportunity to create a new world for freedom and justice.”
