Overview

Pat Boone hosts the documentary program Real Heroes: Inspirational Stories of Giving. This special pays unfettered tribute to the uniquely American holiday known as Thanksgiving - whereby, each November, U.S. citizens gather with their loved ones to express gratitude and appreciation for the blessings bestowed upon them. The program begins with a detailed exploration of the holiday's moving history, touching on the events initiated by the Continental Congress and Abraham Lincoln (who officially made it a federal holiday); it then moves into several contemporary news-like stories of moral uplift - stories of how Americans found their lives indelibly impacted by the late November holiday. These include the tale of some deeply thankful grizzly bears, the story of a gang member who threw crime by the wayside and decided to devote his life to helping others; the account of a gentleman from an oppressive nation who fled its borders to find sanctity for himself and his family in the United States; and several others.
