A Brief History of Thanksgiving, as told by Jim Flanagan

I was inspired to create the video below by an e-mail I received this morning. Here, in their entirety, are both the e-mail and the video. Enjoy and Happy Thanksgiving!
Good Morning! It is now Thanksgiving week, and every year I struggle to find the right words to express my gratitude and appreciation for your support and hard work. I think most of you would agree, as 2009 has evolved, it has turned out to be one tough year! I wonder how it would compare to the challenges faced by our forefathers as they began to shape our country. It has been nearly four centuries since the Pilgrims survived their first winter at Plymouth. As it is told, that first winter was brutal—nothing like anything they had ever experienced before. But they prevailed with the resiliency that Americans have demonstrated time and time again In so many wonderful ways, we come together at this time to cherish what unites us. As we sit down to our Thanksgiving Day meal, we must remember that not everyone will be with their family and loved ones this Thanksgiving. We have the men and women of our armed services, who have given up their holidays and time with their families to make sure we can safely be with ours. My sincere thanks to each of you, and your families for their support of your efforts. Coldwell Banker thrives because we have the best people, with a common set of values, working to make a difference in people’s lives. As you gather with your family and friends, I hope you will find many blessings for which to be thankful.
Warm wishes for a Blessed and Happy Thanksgiving! P.Dawn Covahey Executive Business Consultant| Coldwell Banker Real Estate LLC
