With Thanksgiving Day being Nov. 28, families and friends have gathered to say thanks for all they have.

To get some insight into what children are thankful for today, local kindergarten students were asked because they know all about saying thanks, whether it's being thankful for their school, God, their families and much more.

Ten students from both Campbellsville and Taylor County elementary schools were asked to answer the question, "What are you thankful for this Thanksgiving?"
