Gardner Marks Celebration of Thanksgiving

Washington, DC – Senator Cory Gardner (R-CO) released the following statement marking the celebration of Thanksgiving:

“As Coloradans gather to celebrate Thanksgiving, we’re reminded that we have much to be grateful for. We live in the greatest state in the freest, most prosperous country that has ever existed. We are a nation founded upon the first principles of opportunity, liberty, and freedom; a nation built upon the chance to succeed.

“Still, these are hard times for many. An uneven economic recovery has left too many unemployed or underemployed, struggling to pay bills and save for the future. I’m grateful for the millions of Americans who devote their time and energy to helping the less fortunate and lifting up their fellow citizens in a time of need.”

“As we in this country sit down to dinner with loved ones, it’s also important to remember the men and women of the United States military. Many of them are spending this holiday far from home, without the company of friends and relatives. The Americans who serve in our armed forces sacrifice so much for our country, all to ensure that we are kept safe and free. To all who serve, and have served our nation, we give our eternal thanks.”
