Following the death of beloved game show host Alex Trebek, it comes as a shine of light to see that Trebek released a hopeful message to fans of Jeopardy! filmed prior to his passing.
He took a minute to greet and remind America to “keep the faith” saying: “Happy Thanksgiving, ladies and gentlemen. You know, in spite of what America and the rest of the world is experiencing right now, there are many reasons to be thankful.” He continued with “There are more and more people extending helpful hands to do a kindness to their neighbors, and that’s a good thing,” said Trebek. “Keep the faith. We’re going to get through all of this and we’re going to be a better society because of it.”
