Happy Thanksgiving To Our Readers

The staff of the Arizona Daily Independent thank our readers for their support of free speech. May you have a blessed Thanksgiving Day.

“Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all the others.” ~ Marcus Tullius Cicero

“At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us.” ~ Albert Schweitzer

“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.” ~ John F. Kennedy

“For me, every hour is grace. And I feel gratitude in my heart each time I can meet someone and look at his or her smile.” ~ Elie Wiesel

“I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought, and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder.”~ Gilbert K. Chesterton

“To give thanks in solitude is enough. Thanksgiving has wings and goes where it must go. Your prayer knows much more about it than you do.”~ Victor Hugo


  1. Even in this time of chaos and violence, there is much around us to be grateful for if we are open to it. Happy Thanksgiving to ADI, its readers, and to all people of good will of whatever persuasion.

    • “Even in this time of chaos and violence”

      Are you inferring this time is any different, specifically, worse than any other? America is decisively winning in foreign conflicts since our new President. It’s not good we’re there (wherever there is) but it is demonstrably better.

      But then again, to liberals/socialists/communists it must be a disconcerting, the economy is growing, capitalism is being allowed to flourish again and America is Becoming GREAT AGAIN!

  2. God Bless the families of our recently lost Military personal – it’s a sad time at the Holidays – our hearts and prayers are with you. Thank you – May God Bless you and yours.

    • Just ignore those protecting our borders that get assaulted from the filth south of the border, right?

  3. Happy Thanksgiving to all.

    Thank you ADI for the all of the tireless work and enormous time you invest into your forum for us to enjoy and participate in.

    While balance might be the secret of life, moderation is the secret to thanksgiving as more heart attacks occur on this day then any another of the year. So stuff your bird to excess and not your face.

    Enjoy the day and be thankful for what you have been given over the growing seasons of spring, sumner and fall, for what you have and what remains as the lean months of winter decend upon us.

    The Oracle

    In the words of W.T.Purkiser:
    “Not what we say about our blessings, but how we use them, is the true measure of our thanksgiving”.

  4. Thank God for all the blessings of this year – each day it’s own miracle – Thank you Lord this and everyday – God Bless America – God Bless Israel ; What time do we show up for dinner…

  5. How blessed are we? The simpleness of knowing and ability to share it will keep your heart and soul in Gods graces, we pray. Amen

  6. “Once a government is committed to the principle of silencing the voice of opposition, it has only one way to go, and that is down the path of increasingly repressive measures, until it becomes a source of terror to all its citizens and creates a country where everyone lives in fear.”
    Harry S Trumam

    I’m thankful tat our american will and our military will not let this happen (fully).
