Setting Sail on Thanksgiving Day

image The Crew of the Amistad is planning to celebrate Thanksgiving at sea -  thankful for the favorable winds forecast and setting sail from Lanzarote to Freetown in Sierra Leone on Thanksgiving Thursday.

The Crew of the Freedom Schooner and the Staff of Amistad America invites All Friends and Supporters of the Atlantic Freedom Tour to share some thankful thoughts across Atlantic Ocean... 

It is literally true, as the thankless say, that they have nothing to be thankful for. He who sits by the fire, thankless for the fire, is just as if he had no fire. Nothing is possessed save in appreciation, of which thankfulness is the indispensable ingredient. But a thankful heart hath a continual feast.

W. J. Cameron
