Gratitude

I hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving. We Americans have so much to be grateful for. Yet, we take so much for granted. It’s a good thing we have Thanksgiving which makes us stop and think about all we have in our lives to be thankful for. Something we should do every day.
For myself, I’m thankful for my daughter, my 98-year old Dad, my sister and brother-in-law, my partner and many friends. On a larger scale, I’m thankful for living in a beautiful place and in a relatively safe and free country.
At the same time, I think about all the hungry and homeless in our country and around the world; and, all the conflict and violence in the world. So much suffering. While we are thankful for what we have, we cannot forget all those who do not have these things. There but for fortunate go you and I.
I hope that all of us will double and triple our commitment and efforts to help those less fortunate than we are. And, to work to bring more peace and justice into our world.
So, finally, I’m grateful for all the people who helped me in editing and publishing my new book, Breaking Big Money’s Grip On America: Working Together To Revive Our Democracy, which suggests some ways for us to come together to make our country a better place for everyone.
