Obama emphasizes on unity in final Thanksgiving message

Barack Obama celebrated his last Thanksgiving at The White house as the President. On this occasion, he sent a video message to the citizens. In this message, he reminded Americans what makes them great a nation. He said, “As a country, we’ve just emerged from a noisy, passionate and sometimes divisive campaign season.” He also added, “After all, elections are often where we emphasize what sets us apart. We face off in a contest of ‘us’ versus ‘them.’ We focus on the candidate we support instead of some of the ideals we share. But a few short weeks later, Thanksgiving reminds us that no matter our differences, we are still one people, part of something bigger than ourselves”.

In his message, he also quoted the 16th President of U.S.A., Abraham Lincoln, who proclaimed Thanksgiving to be a National holiday where the Nation’s gift should be “solemnly and gratefully acknowledged with one heart and one voice by the whole American people.”

Obama also applauded those who worked constantly towards making America greater and helped in building its heritage. Speaking of races, he added in his message that, “We, as a nation, are bound to a common belief that all of us are created equal, the gift of democracy is ours to nurture and protect and that is what makes us Americans.” He urged on the importance of unity and staying stronger together as a nation. He also encouraged citizens in taking steps in a new direction, with hope and patience and reminded citizens of what the essence of America is.
