It’s easy to forget all of our blessings when we hear of the tragedies unfolding around us on a daily basis. Whether it’s a local break-in and mugging, or the fanaticism in the Middle East, it’s too easy to cast the glass half full. Let’s not go there.
Rather, let us look at the beauty and hope which are part of this time of the year. We live in a bountiful time providing all of us wealth in ways not just measured in money. We have access to communications unheard of a generation ago. Our ability to travel anywhere in the world – regardless of the threats from fanatics – is exceptional. The access to medical care for all its foibles is still excellent. Thus, this coming Thursday, let us join our family and/or friends and be thankful for the bounty of our nation and times. Happy Thanksgiving!
