And so in the morning, after calling upon God for direction, we came to this conclusion: to go presently ashore again. For we could not now take time for further search or consideration, our victuals being much spent, especially our beer.

- William Bradford, 1620, writing aboard the Mayflower, explaining why the Pilgrims were putting ashore at Plymouth Rock instead of at their planned landing further south.

May Thanksgiving find us all able to give thanks for those things and those people who have given us life, love, joy, protection, advocacy, and inspiration.
