Bush says to give thanks by 'giving back' - Urges Americans

CHARLES CITY, Va. - President Bush told Americans yesterday that they should commemorate the nation's Thanksgiving Day holiday by expressing gratitude to those who "serve in a cause larger than themselves" and by aiding the less fortunate.

"As we count our many blessings, I encourage all Americans to show their thanks by giving back," Bush said at Berkeley Plantation in Charles City, Va., in the first Thanksgiving-themed speech of his presidency.

The president cited the opportunities available in the United States, extolled the gifts of freedom and democracy, and offered praise to farmers, teachers, soldiers, police officers, and others who contribute to the greater good.

He gave particular attention to members of the armed forces, who are engaged in conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq. To those who have lost a family member in those wars, Bush said, "We vow that their sacrifice will not be in vain."

Since the Civil War, the United States has celebrated the Thanksgiving holiday on the fourth Thursday in November. This year it falls on Nov. 22.
