On Thanksgiving, Let’s Give Thanks to God

 
 
November 25 2021
 

Happy Thanksgiving from Washington, where we hope you're able to gather in thanks with loved ones wherever you are. We've got a reflection from Lee Edwards on Thanksgiving during a difficult year and John Stossel on the lessons of the pilgrims. Plus: Mary Margaret Olohan talks to Sen. Rand Paul about the COVID-19 vaccine for kids, and Rob Bluey reports on Virginia Lt. Gov.-elect Winsome Sears' views on COVID-19 immunity. On this date in 1950, the "storm of the century" strikes the Eastern U.S. at Thanksgiving, dumping sometimes impassable snow on multiple states, killing hundreds, and wreaking millions of dollars in damages. Let's count our blessings today and this weekend. Morning Bell will return Saturday.
