We hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday with your friends and loved ones. We would like to extend our deepest gratitude to you all for subscribing to our Weekly Newsletter.
Despite the difficulties faced this year due to the challenge of the pandemic, contributor Nate Gorman reminds us in his Thanksgiving article that, “we are not automatons subjugated to the predispositions of distressing news that surrounds us. We can still hold fast to our innermost freedom to choose our attitude towards disfavored circumstances. This crisis, if nothing else, can be an exercise in optimizing our freedom of spirit. We would do well to make our “chosen way” the way of hope and gratefulness.”
This Thanksgiving our contributors spent time reflecting on how fortunate we are to live in the greatest country in the history of the world. Columnist Taylor Hunt reminds us of these blessings in her piece, Ten Things to Put Thanksgiving Into Perspective.
On gratitude, Western civilization and the American experiment, William F. Buckley’s remarks at the Intercollegiate Studies Institute’s 35th anniversary in 1988 compel us to recognize the huge debt we owe to our collective inheritance. Published as an essay by National Review, the speech remains as timely as ever.
