Charleston, WV – U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) today released the following statement wishing West Virginians a happy Thanksgiving.
“This year as West Virginians gather together to celebrate Thanksgiving, I am reminded of the great blessings we share as West Virginians and Americans. Growing up in Farmington, I was always taught that if you can count your blessings, you can share your blessings. And despite the challenges we faced this year, there is much to be grateful for.
“We have made great strides in our efforts to defeat COVID-19. America led the world in the creation of multiple safe and effective vaccines, allowing many West Virginia families to safely gather to celebrate Thanksgiving this year. I encourage any West Virginian who has not received the COVID-19 vaccine to protect themselves, their loved ones and their community by getting vaccinated this holiday season.
“We are also grateful for all those who sacrifice to keep us safe. To our servicemembers, frontline workers and their families – we are so thankful for your service.
“Today and every day, I am thankful for the privilege to serve the great state of West Virginia. On behalf of Gayle, myself and our family, we wish you and your family a safe and happy Thanksgiving. God Bless America and God Bless our great state of West Virginia.”
