Thanksgiving is a wonderful day when we gather with family and friends, eat an amazing feast, and remember the pilgrims who prepared the way for the establishment of America.
But Thanksgiving is also about friendship. Without the loyal and loving help of their new friend, Squanto, the pilgrims probably would not have survived.
Squanto, who had every reason to be bitter, chose to take care of the pilgrims and teach them how to prosper in their difficult circumstances. More than that, he protected them and adopted them as his new family.
His life is a great example for us all.
