Editorial: Thanksgiving

The following is an editorial from FOX6 WBRC-TV General Manager Lou Kirchen, first aired on Tuesday, November 24, 2009.

When the going gets tough, the tough get going.  During this very tough year, we have seen so many in our community step up to help those in need…and there has been much to do.   Birmingham and our surrounding communities are blessed with good people…working thru effective organizations to provide food, clothing and shelter for our neighbors who have fallen on tough times.

Jimmy Hill Mission will feed thousands, again, this Thanksgiving, with the help and generosity of many of you.  Church food banks and many service organizations will provide food for folks throughout our region on this holiday.  A huge thanks to all who give of their time and resources.

Thanksgiving is our time to celebrate the harvest…sharing it with family and friends.  This year…one that's been challenging for most of us…please remember to be thankful for all that you have.  If and when you say grace over your Thanksgiving meal, please remember to bless all of those working in our community to make life a little easier for those in need.  Happy Thanksgiving.
