RELEASE FROM THE OFFICE OF MISSOURI GOVERNOR JAY NIXON

Thanksgiving 2013 message from Gov. Nixon

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. – Gov. Jay Nixon today issued his annual Thanksgiving message:

“On this 150th anniversary of President Lincoln first proclaiming a national day of Thanksgiving, the First Lady and I join millions of other Missouri families in pausing to give thanks for our many blessings.

“This Thanksgiving, as we appreciate the reasons for the abundance we enjoy, we must also remember that because of the courage and sacrifice of our men and women in uniform, we live in a country and a state that are strong, secure and free. Many of them won’t be able to join their own families this holiday season, because they are serving our country in places around the world. We ask that God protect those brave men and women, just as they are protecting us.

“I hope that as you sit down to dinner this Thanksgiving, you will join our family in taking time to thank our Creator for the blessings we enjoy each day. Georganne and I wish you and your loved ones, and all Missourians, a very blessed and happy Thanksgiving.”
