In video messages, Biden and Harris both stressed the importance of being thankful for the opportunity to gather in person for Thanksgiving this year after "being apart last year.

"

Trump, meanwhile, released a written statement in which he focused on enjoying this Thanksgiving knowing that "a wonderful future lies ahead."

"Happy Thanksgiving, everyone. This is always a special time in America," Biden said in his message, alongside his wife, Jill. "But this year, the blessings of Thanksgiving are especially meaningful."

The first lady continued on to explain that "after being apart last year, we have a new appreciation for those little moments we can't plan or replicate."

THANKSGIVING DINNER ISN'T ACTUALLY UNUSUALLY EXPENSIVE THIS YEAR

"Happy Thanksgiving, everyone," Harris said in her video , alongside her husband, Doug Emhoff. Similar to the first lady, second gentleman Emhoff explained, "Because of the pandemic, we all had to adjust our Thanksgiving traditions."

Harris shared that because "more people have been vaccinated," more families are able to reunite for in-person holiday gatherings: "Grandparents are being reunited with their grandchildren, and more families, including ours, will be back together."

Trump chose to keep his words somewhat reserved, but he pointed out : "A very interesting time in our Country, but do not worry, we will be great again — and we will all do it together. America will never fail, and we will never allow it to go in the wrong direction."

Streamwood High School renames gym for retiring coach George Rosner

STREAMWOOD, Ill. (WLS) -- The gym at Streamwood High School has been George Rosner's home for 41 years, and now it's official: It's been renamed George Rosner Arena. The hall of fame girls basketball coach's name graces the top of the scoreboard.

"I'm stunned. I'm overwhelmed and I thank you from the absolute bottom of my heart," he said.

The school kept it secret from him, but they've been planning it for more than a year.

"He's been coaching longer than I've been alive, so it's pretty special," said Athletic Director Jason Ziols.

Dozens of former players from over the years are here to help him celebrate the start of what he said will be his final season.

Patty Zuick scored the first basket in Coach Rosner's very first game; he gave her the original scoreboard to prove it.

"Amazing. He had a good run. Good coach," she said.

The 72-year-old said his teams are like family, and like family they've stayed close over the years. The photo table in the lobby offers tributes to some of his milestones, including hundreds of game wins and multiple championships. Chris Tomasiewicz is one of many former players who was able to play in college after graduating here.

"He's had a huge impact on my life. He started coaching me when I was eight and he's still a big part of my life now," he said.

The coach's real family was also in attendance, of course. They've spent countless hours at the gym over the years, cheering for Streamwood teams and listening to the Neil Diamond songs Coach Rosner always blares through the speakers.

"To see Rosner Arena, I don't think it's sunk in yet. He's gonna think about this more and more," said his wife Kathy Rosner.

"I'm stunned by this," Coach Rosner said. "Every time I looked up there was someone I hadn't seen in ages."

Coach Rosner has spent his entire career coaching girls, with the exception of the first year Streamwood High School opened when he coached the sophomore boys team, which included this future reporter.
