WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Congressman Sanford D. Bishop, Jr. (GA-02) issued the following statement for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday on Thursday, November 22, 2012.
“For many, family and friends gather on Thanksgiving for good food and warm memories. Unfortunately, not all of us have the opportunity to celebrate with loved ones or over a cooked meal,” said Congressman Bishop. “As we gather and give thanks to God for all of His blessings, please remember to reflect on who we are as Americans. Whether you send a prayer to our brave service members far from home, or send a donation to the local food bank down the street, you honor the bravery and charity rooted at the core of our nation. Personally, I am thankful for all of you, and wish everyone a wonderful Thanksgiving this year.”
