Thanksgiving 2013


Yesterday’s post looked at a bleak, futuristic Thanksgiving.  But today, let’s reflect on why we should be thankful.  We still live in the best country on earth, thanks to the countless military heroes who gave their lives over the years to keep us free.  We still have basic inalienable rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.  We still enjoy good health care, have opportunities for an outstanding education, and are presumed innocent until proven guilty.  There is so much more, but suffice it to say that we should celebrate and be grateful for all we have.  God has blessed us beyond measure.

Carl Adds:

We are a nation that encourages growth, so that all may benefit from our bounty in ideas and labor.

Many of us will forever remember exactly where we were 50 years ago when that phone rang, or the radio was turned on. A little bit of us all died that day.
We are blessed to have lived with grandparents still able to be in awe of the magnificence of man’s first flight, then see to their own amazement when the United States started landing on the moon!
We are blessed to live in a nation whose founding is based on protecting everyone, but especially a minority of one. Even if keeping that vow requires amazing amounts of blood and treasure to secure.
We are blessed with the good fortune to have lived during a time when it became crystal clear how smaller men can chain a country to despair, while bigger ones unleash it’s greatness and prosperity, and continue to inspire.

From both Carl & I, we wish you a blessed and happy Thanksgiving, spent with those you love.
