WASHINGTON, DC — US Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-Miss.) today issued a statement commemorating Thanksgiving, encouraging Mississippi residents to give thanks for their many blessings despite troubled social and economic times.

“Despite the serious challenges we face, it’s worth remembering that our nation remains prosperous and hopeful. As we gather this year, let us commit to never taking for granted what makes America such a beautiful place to live: the promise of liberty, justice and democracy,” Hyde-Smith said.

“It has not been an easy year for many Americans, but I pray for a brighter future for our nation, believing that as long as we open our hearts to Him, God will guide us,” she added.

Read the Senator’s statement below in its entirety:

Since the birth of our nation, we have taken a certain amount of time as a people to stop and give thanks for the many blessings that God has bestowed on us. We surround ourselves with our loved ones and take time to reflect on the things that really matter, such as our faith, our family, and our nation.

Despite the serious challenges we face, it is worth remembering that our nation remains prosperous and hopeful. As we gather this year, let us commit to never taking for granted what makes America such a beautiful place to live: the promise of liberty, justice, and democracy.

We must also remember that we would not have these things if it were not for the brave men and women of our military. Many of them may be spending this Thanksgiving away from their families so that we can be safe at home with ours.

Ditto for our police officers and first responders who work to keep us safe and healthy instead of enjoying Thanksgiving dinner with family or the soccer game with friends.

As we reflect on the many blessings we enjoy, we must also think of our fellow countrymen who are forced to forego them, especially in these troubled economic times. We must recommit to helping where we can and sharing our gifts with our neighbors in times of need.

It has not been an easy year for many Americans, but I pray for a brighter future for our nation, believing that as long as we open our hearts to Him, God will lead us on the right path.

To all Mississippi residents, I hope you have a warm, safe and very happy Thanksgiving surrounded by those you love and cherish. God bless you.
