There’s a lot of privilege in that photo. I’m thankful for the people who sacrificed so much.
I have a great deal to be thankful for, family, particularly grandchildren, good friends, an interesting and rewarding career, and an abundant life.
Thank you for visiting this blog – for all it is and isn’t. I appreciate your comments and participation. Thank you for putting up with me.
The world is still an interesting place and it’s more fun if we encounter it together.
I hope that you have an opportunity to be with the ones you love on this holiday and that you’re able to take time out to give thanks.
Those of you who know me will understand that the holidays are always difficult for me. Absent friends and absent family. We all have them and we all miss them, don’t we?
We are the manifestation in the modern, of our stalwart ancestors who gave all that we might be. I don’t know of anyone who didn’t want their children and grandchildren to have better lives than they did. Thanksgiving brings generations together in celebration of many things, and naturally, the communists in Washington DC and their media factotums cheer them on.
And still, we celebrate.
