With Turkey Beckoning, Travelers Hit the Road, Sky, Train Tracks; Record Numbers Expected
NEW YORK (AP) -- Americans packed up and headed to airports and train stations hours ahead of time Wednesday to get a jump on what was predicted to be the largest Thanksgiving pilgrimage ever -- despite rising gas prices and fears of air delays.

There is sermon for on SA titled Thanksgiving Day Message by Dr. McIntire on 11/24/83. Everybody in the USA should hear this not just Christians. Here is a comment made:
"The 20th Century Reformation Hour touched lives for decades, and no better than with this Thanksgiving message, with Psalm 146, as well as highlighting the Mayflower Compact and other foundational documents of our Republic, (too many little mentioned today). How we need more messages like this, urging Thanks to God in heartfelt appreciation for what He's given to us. God bless Dr. McIntire and the United States of America!"
It is a truly a shame people are wasting their time today watching sports and they don't have a clue what Thanksgiving really means or was founded on!!!
