International Space Station Commander, Barry "Butch" Wilmore, shares his thoughts about Thanksgiving Day. He covers all the bases. Gratitude for the early settlers who bravely journeyed across the Atlantic Ocean for freedom and economic opportunity. Gratitude for the military, who help uphold freedom here and abroad every day. Gratitude for family, and the opportunity to have a day dedicated to giving thanks. Gratitude for the provision of delicious food, which reminds us of the daily bounty we have at our fingertips. And last, but not least, the opportunity to fulfill our dreams and lead lives full of joy and satisfaction.
I'm wishing all of you a Thanksgiving Day full of gratitude and peace.
