No men­tion of Thanks­giv­ing

The Recorder & Times (Brockville) - - OPINION -

i read and reread our lit­tle lo­cal pa­per satur­day, Oct. 7. i was sur­prised and dis­ap­pointed and even dis­gusted to find no men­tion any­where of thanks­giv­ing.

What a dread­ful omis­sion. We live in one of the finest and safest coun­tries in the world. We are free to think, speak and dis­agree with govern­ment poli­cies with­out fear of im­pris­on­ment and tor­ture as well as so many other bless­ings be­stowed upon us.

i hope the recorder and times has the courage to print this let­ter. i feel cer­tain that (for­mer man­ag­ing edi­tor) derek Gor­danier and (for­mer pho­tog­ra­pher and re­porter) darcy cheek would not have failed to make some ref­er­ence to this yearly cel­e­bra­tion of thanks­giv­ing.

Per­haps is has be­come just an­other hol­i­day with­out the thought or thanks of its true mean­ing. Glo­ria Macken­zie Brockville
