Secretary Jackson's Thanksgiving Statement

Wednesday, November 23, 2005

To the HUD Family,

This Thanksgiving, especially, I am thankful for all of you. I am thankful for the work that you do on behalf of this country, and I am thankful for the work that you do in communities across the nation. The Hurricanes of the past months have, perhaps more than ever, made us mindful of the blessings that we all share. The Hurricanes have also shown us the courage, the compassion, and the strength, of Americans reaching out to help each other in a time of need. This Thanksgiving I give thanks for many simple blessings´┐Ża loving home, good food, family, friends. I am mindful of those that go without these simple blessings this season, and as I pray for them, I say thanks that together, we can all work to extend these simple blessings to all Americans. Thank you for your service.

Wishing you a warm and blessed Thanksgiving,
Alphonso Jackson
