 It’s traditional for Governors to deliver Thanksgiving Proclamations every year.  They usually include something about being thankful and a recap of the year.   This year, Connecticut Governor Dannel Malloy’s message says, in part, “From a once-in-a-lifetime economic downturn, to dangerous storms, to unthinkable tragedy, we have faced challenges that no one would ever have asked for.  Yet, in those darkest moments of need, I have been thankful for the tremendous grace and compassion we have shown to one another.”
