Thanksgiving "The Real Story"

Thanksgiving "The Real Story"

The Geroge Washington 1789 Thanksgiving proclamation.

Whereas it is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and humbly to implore His protection and favor--and whereas both Houses of Congress have by their joint Committee requested me "to recommend to the People of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness."

Now therefore I do recommend and assign Thursday the 26th of November next to be devoted by the People of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being, who is the beneficent Author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be -- That we may then all unite in rendering unto Him our sincere and humble thanks -- for His kind care and protection of the People of this Country previous to their becoming a Nation -- for the signal and manifold mercies and the favorable interpostions of His Providence which we experienced in the tranquility, union, and plenty, which we have since enjoyed -- for the peaceable and rational manner, in which we have been enabled to establish constitutions of government for our safety and happiness, and particularly the national One now lately instituted -- for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed: and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge; and in general for all the great and various favors which He hath been pleased to confer upon us.

And also that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of nations and beseech Him to pardon our national and other transgressions -- to enable us all, whether in public or private stations, to perform our several and relative duties properly and punctually -- to render our national government a blessing to all the people, by constantly being a Government of wise, just, and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed -- to protect and guide all Sovereigns and Nations (especially such as have shewn kindness onto us) and to bless them with good government peace and concord -- To promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the encrease of science among them and us -- and generally to grant unto all Mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as He alone knows to be best.

Given under my hand at the City of New York the third day of October in the year of our Lord 1789.

George Washington

For Time
On December 15, 2010, Justin Schmalstieg lost his life in Afghanistan serving our country as a Marine. Staff Sgt. Justin Schmalstieg was working as a bomb tech in Afghanistan. He completed his mission when a roadside bomb he was working to diffuse went off.
Justin aka Schmalls has been a long time athlete of Oceanside CrossFit. He was an incredible athlete, a great person, and a loving husband. Many OCF have enjoyed the privilege of his competitive spirit. He always gave it his all, left his sweat on our gym floor, and made us all better athletes just trying to keep pace with him. Justin was only 28 years old when he gave the ultimate sacrifice for all of us in the defense of our nation; against those who would wish to do us and our own families harm. Oceanside CrossFit would like to thank him and his wife Ann on December 10th, 2011 by hitting his Hero WOD “Schmalls” and raising money through the sale of his t-shirt.

We will be doing the WOD on Friday December 9th. If you would like to receive a t-shirt and give to the cause please contact the link below. Everyone that signs up and participates will get a Schmalls t-shirt.
