    ISSUE: Thanksgiving Day
    OUR VIEW: This great nation is blessed

    It’s here again, Thanksgiving Day. A date on the calendar of our lives on which we are to individually and collectively reflect upon and give thanks for all that is meaningful to us. A day set aside to recognize the blessings we too often overlook and take for granted the other 364 days of the year.

    It seems again this year, though, there’s more an attitude of discontent than thankfulness among many in the nation.

  • More than thankful

    As I look back on 2011, there are many things to be thankful for.

    Some of them are the usual suspects: health, food, clothing and all the other basics. Some things I am thankful for are silly, like Diet Coke and Italian food. Some are sweet, like another year with my aging Lab, Boo.

    One event in 2011 made saying “I’m thankful” seem almost a trite expression. It was something that made being grateful more than just words expressed. It was a state of being that overwhelmed me to my very core.
