Thanksgiving 1620 - 2020
The voyage from where the journey started to where we are today has far more significance than most people realize.
That's because for a unique period, no powerful leader was deciding their fate. No, those voyagers were not a cohesive group. They were not all Puritans. There was discord among them.
That led to an attempt to set up rules by the ungoverned, however, fair or unfair they tried to make those rules. There was in-fighting and discrimination and not all votes were equal even of those entitled to have a say.
But it started a chain of events, or rather, a continuation of events, that some 150 years later led to one of the most famous documents in the history of civilization, The Declaration of Independence and The Bill of Rights.
It stated a vision, and created provisions for adjusting for inequality and injustices. Government was set up specifically because humans are not perfect and never will be. The the rules were established. And they were written down for all to see. Today, we are the beneficiaries of that journey.
And that's why we give thanks.
