"Happy Thanksgiving, ladies and gentlemen, you know, in spite of what America and the rest of the world is experiencing right now, there are many reasons to be thankful. There are more and more people extending helpful hands to do a kindness to their neighbors. And that's a good thing. Keep the faith. We're going to get through all of this and we will be a better society because of it."
