"As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation
is not to utter the words, but to live by them."
John Fitzgerald Kennedy
I hope you're enjoying the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. How wonderful to gather, catch up and share blessings with family and friends.
Earlier this week President Obama honored 21 Medal of Freedom recipients, the last of his term in office. No other president has celebrated more individuals with this distinction.
During the ceremony, he mentioned how this inspired group was special to him - how they all influenced his life in a powerful way. President Obama said, "It's useful, when you think about this incredible collection of people, to realize this is what makes us the greatest nation on earth. Not because of our differences, but because in our differences we find something in common to share. And what a glorious gift that is."
