A Thanksgiving Prayer

A Thanksgiving Prayer

Our Thanksgiving Quote of the Week expresses gratitude in a characteristically Shriveresque way.

Sargent Shriver recited this prayer at a meeting of the Special Olympics International Board of Directors. He was Chair of the Board of Special Olympics at the time. A deeply devout person whose passion for service was rooted in his spirituality, Sargent Shriver lived by his values each day. His gratitude and respect for life and for humanity shine through in these words.

As we prepare for Thanksgiving here in the US, we wish to express our own feeling of gratitude for each of you. We are truly grateful for your friendship and your support, and we thank you.
