Jean Eddy Clerius never met Myles Standish. To be honest, he may have never heard of one of the more famous pilgrims, but it doesn't mean that the Hagerstown Community College guard isn't down with what Standish was feeling on this day oh so many years ago. The turkey is going to taste a whole lot better - maybe even different - to Clerius today. Like the Plymouth Rock crowd, this will be a “first” Thanksgiving … a real first opportunity to make a grateful acknowledgment of all gifts, benefits and favors that have been received.
