On behalf of the Harper family – Sidney, Livingston, Maggie and I – I want to wish you and each one of your families a very happy Thanksgiving.
For me, like so many of you, this is a day with family and friends, a time to give thanks for our many blessings, for each other, and a time to rejoice and remember that we are one nation under God.
As we pause on this autumn day to bow our heads, I encourage you to remember the countless sacrifices made by our military men and women and their families. Today, many of these individuals will be separated from their loved ones while serving America far away and in harm’s way. For them we are especially grateful.
In closing, my family and I cannot thank you enough for the honor of serving each of you in the U.S. Congress. And we thank God for the blessings of living in the greatest and most free country in the world.
Member of Congress
