There may be no elected official better at speaking directly to the camera and conveying decency and warmth and intelligence and humor than Sen. Rev. Raphael Warnock, as he reminds us in a brilliant new Thanksgiving ad.
Politics these days is often used to divide us. But Thanksgiving offers us an opportunity to consider all the things we share in common. We all want better lives for our children, we all want to live in safe and secure communities, we all want to be treated with dignity and respect.
Let us pause this Thanksgiving and celebrate that these are the values that inspire us all. Let us offer our gratitude to those whose commitment make our lives better, stronger, freer. To those in uniform who bravely defend our country, to the teachers, the first responders, and the generations before them who built America into the greatest country on the planet.
The prophet Jeremiah, living through difficult days, said that out of them shall come songs of thanksgiving and the sounds of rejoicing. That is my prayer for you and for us all.
