A few Thanksgiving Day messages from the inbox:
Pres. Barack Obama:
When Michelle and I sit down with our family to give thanks today, I want you to know that we'll be especially grateful for folks like you.
Everything we have been able to accomplish in the last two years was possible because you have been willing to work for it and organize for it.
And every time we face a setback, or when progress doesn't happen as quickly as we would like, we know that you'll be right there with us, ready to fight another day.
So I want to thank you -- for everything.
I also hope you'll join me in taking a moment to remember that the freedoms and security we enjoy as Americans are protected by the brave men and women of the United States Armed Forces. These patriots are willing to lay down their lives in our defense, and each of us owes them and their families a debt of gratitude.
Have a wonderful day, and God bless.
Congresswoman Allyson Schwartz:
As we gather for Thanksgiving with family and friends, I want to take a moment to wish you a happy Thanksgiving and to tell you how grateful I am for your support and confidence.
We have much to be grateful for, even as we acknowledge the hardships so many Americans have experienced this past year as the national economy slowly recovers.
There is much to do and I am honored to return to Congress to work to strengthen the economy, and better ensure security and opportunity for all Americans.
Best wishes for a warm and happy Thanksgiving.
Sen. Bob Casey
As we prepare to celebrate Thanksgiving it is a time to be thankful and remember our many blessings.
It is also a time to remember the challenges our Commonwealth and our country face and the work that must be done to strengthen our economy. Unemployment is too high and more people are struggling to put food on their table.
I would also like to especially thank the men and women who are serving our country overseas and are away from their families.
Terese and I wish you and your family a Happy Thanksgiving.
