All of us here at 570 KVI are wishing you and your families a safe and Happy Thanksgiving. See below for notes from KVI's John Carlson and Kirby Wilbur.
"This was the most volatile year of my adulthood. Not since the late 60’s and very early 70’s, when I was just a boy, was there a more challenging year for our country than this one.
And yet, oddly, it reminds us why Thanksgiving is so important. Despite all the turmoil around us, from closed schools and businesses, to packed hospitals and rioting in our streets, America remained strong. That’s because everyday, ordinary Americans kept their head, while liberal elites and their entitled offspring seemed to be having a four-year panic attack, in our capitols, our cities and throughout our media.
I am thankful that, once again, everyday America survived the excesses and eccentricities of elite America. And I’m thankful that 2021 will be a much better year for us.
If you agree with me, I have a small favor to ask. Let’s end this year on a high note by helping the poor among us have a wonderful Christmas. Please join me in helping the KOMO Toy Drive benefitting The Salvation Army by going online to KVI.com/ToyDrive. You sign up to buy children a toy or two, or make a donation and have the Salvation Army buy the toys for you. KVI listeners always step up to make the Toy Drive a success, and I know you will again this year.
Thank you for continuing to listen to 570KVI, and for helping to keep this country great.
"Despite all the troubles and concerns in our world today, we have much to be thankful for. Our forefathers, 400 years ago, faced much more danger, endured much more suffering, had much less reason to hope than we have today. Yet, they took a day to thank God for the many blessings they received from him.
On this Thanksgiving, let us pause with family and/or friends to be thankful to our God for what he has blessed us with; liberty, incredible material wealth, opportunity, and being American. And let us not forget the less fortunate and lonely among us. Contribute to a food bank, check in with elderly neighbors who might need help or assistance, or just a friend, find a way to share the many blessings we have with those who may have less. Be the light to brighten others lives. And, from all of us here at KVI, and from the Wilbur family, may you all have a happy and blessed Thanksgiving."
