Be Grateful. Give Thanks.

As the orgy of merchandising unfolds around us, and as too many places in the world (including the government in Washington) appear to be going to hell in a handbasket, for us in America there is nonetheless much to be thankful for.

Please keep in mind that however much you may be enjoying your holiday feast, that is not what this holiday is about. Do enjoy your turkey etc., but be thankful for everything else, not the least for the opportunity to get together with people you love, and, above all, for living in America.
