Thanksgiving Challenge 2016
Fast approaching is the American Holiday of Thanksgiving. A holiday that rests at the very core of American culture and tradition first given to us as the Pilgrims and the aboriginal natives of the Americas met in solidarity and celebration of human life. This sacred American commemoration represents the central mass of the spiritual heritage of Americans: Let all come to the horn of plenty and feast at its abundance!
It is not just a Christian celebration on the common calendar, but the olive branch of friendship between people who may be different culturally and philosophically, yet, share the same bonds of humanity, the need to eat to live!
Give thanks for the diversity that is humanity.
Starting, 11/18/2016, I issue a friendly challenge to all willing to participate, to fashion one story for each day counting down to Thanksgiving using a word provided for that day. In total, and this is intense, seven hubs will exist by the time the challenge ends on Thanksgiving Day. These hubs can be stories, or informative articles, but must relate to giving thanks. Religion, fiction, fantasy, or any genre can be used as long as the theme of giving thanks exists along with the word of the day. The standard Hubpages rules apply regarding quality. Your hub Must feature, though there is no standard length requirement.
To signal that you are participating, the title should look like this : Thanksgiving Challenge 2016 (day of week): (word(s) of day) - (optional: catchy identifier)

Thanksgiving Hymn of Gratitude - poetry
- by Rodric Johnson Quoted from my poetry Website listed on my bio.
Turkey Dinner is not Sweet.
Yet, sweetly meets as families greet.
Yes, sweetly greets with loving feats
Of peace around the Horn.
Speaking peace to Cherished friends?
Yes, Come In, friends. Love never ends!
So, Come In, Freinds. Let us begin
To carve the bird so Warm.
Thanks for help, seen and unseen.
Unseen or seen the blessing ring.
See, unseen blessings this Day brings
On the Thanks - giv - ing Charm.
Let there here be peace for us.
For us, we trust peace will not rust.
Will It for us rust? Nev - er Must
We lose our love so strong!
