While Lincoln was immersed in a war to save our Union, he found time to ensure that Thanksgiving would be celebrated annually on the last Thursday of November as a national holiday. The proclamation and a column by John Burbank that ran on HeraldNet offer greater insights into the story.
Work and doctoral studies have interrupted my usual posting flow, so I look forward to contributing to this blog more regularly after the Thanksgiving holiday. I'll begin by reviewing a terrific book by Suzanne Lowe called The Integration Imperative - a must read for anyone leading a professional services firm and an important and relevant book for other professionals as well. It's the rare book that's more than a book, but a practical resource from which you can draw upon on an ongoing basis. I look forward to sharing more with you next week.
In the meantime, be sure to propose a toast to our 16th president and have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
