Thanksgiving Day 2007


Each and every breathing day when the body finds nourishment, the mind still thinks, and there is at least one person who cares for us we have much to be thankful for.

But today, as an American, I am thankful, not for turkey slices and cranberry sauce, but  for the freedom to express my thoughts without fear of persecution, to believe and to disbelieve as my reason and conscience dictate, and for a system of government that allows for periodic change of people in power, even if it does not always present us with candidates worthy of our hearty vote in their favor.
