Thank You, Sarah

Thank You, Sarah

Once upon a time Thanksgiving was being forgotten across America. Oh, sure, there were a few turkey dinners being cooked up in New England, but across the land it was generally being ignored. Then along came Sarah Josepha Hale, a woman who wielded a mighty pen in support of many causes in her lifetime. Her greatest cause, though, was her wanting to see the entire country sharing a day of thanks. So, she entreated President after President to declare a day of Thanksgiving. It took a few decades, but finally Abraham Lincoln said yes. She’s a great role model for young people about determination and not giving up on something you really believe in.
