Mike Parks, CEO of the American Red Cross, Northeast Ohio Region saw this column, written by Regina Brett in last Sunday’s Plain Dealer and was inspired to share the following with Red Cross staff and volunteers:

“I thought Regina did a remarkable job of capturing the importance of the holiday we celebrate this week.  I intend to share it with those gathered around our Thanksgiving table this year and felt moved to share it with all of you as well.

“Please accept my heartfelt thanks-not just this week-but throughout the year, for all you do to help prevent and alleviate human suffering throughout Northeast Ohio.

“I wish all of you a blessed and enjoyable Thanksgiving.

“Best regards…Mike”
