I am thankful for my family. I am thankful for my friends. I am thankful for my sweet little dog, Winnie. I am thankful for the surgeon who is going to take good care of me next week. I am particularly thankful for what seems to be a new awareness regarding the earth’s plight. There are more and more organizations trying desperately to clean up our oceans. There are more and more organizations trying desperately to clean up our lands. There are more and more organizations trying desperately to make life better for the disadvantaged. There are more and more organizations helping abused children find a better place in the world. There are more and more organizations rescuing pets (like my Winnie) and finding good homes for them. And there are more and more organizations trying to help refugees displaced from their countries of origin to find new places to start over.
It is unfortunate that there are key people in our government and other governments who would like to thwart much of this change, but I believe we will overcome their efforts and we will prevail. For this, I am truly thankful.
I wish you and yours a very Happy Thanksgiving.
