“Thanksgivings day is a truly American holiday, yet sometimes we fail to appreciate the things we collectively have to be thankful for. Today especially in the wake of a war with demigods and bigots attempting to set one group of Americans against another it seems more vital than ever that we pause to consider the ideas and the ideals upon which our nation has sprung. A few weeks ago in our nations capital the most precious documents belonging to the people of the United States were removed from the archives and placed aboard the freedom train for all to go and see, to look at the words of liberty, the documents of justice, those papers that guarantee equality for all Americans. They will remind you that we the Americans have much to be thankful for. It is with this in mind that we bring you tonight’s story of a man who turned his back on his heritage." Bing Crosby narrates the story A Man Without A Country, written by Edward Everett Hale in 1863.
