There is no doubt that we are truly one of the most blessed nations on earth. We have so much to be thankful for, yet we do not. We throw away enough food to feed the entire world and while much of the world struggles to eat we spend more time struggling to keep thin. We can focus on what we are not or focus on what we have and where we have come from. We are a nation of immigrants who with their hope and faith came to this country to seek happiness and the well being of their family. In the process a nation was built.
While some gather around the world to bemoan what we are not, and while this is easy... may we together on this thanksgiving remind ourselves of what we have, and what we will have tho we have not yet received it... by giving simple thanks.
There's magic in it.
