Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

I wanted to take a minute after gorging myself on turkey, stuffing, yams, sprouts, and cranberry sauce to make sure we are all reflecting on what is really important and how blessed we truly are.

We are reminded again that there are hordes of people in our country who do not have a place to go today or stay tonight, nor do they have a meal. This is not confined to the holidays, need knows no season. With the continual economic issues, more and more families and children are in poverty in this country than ever before.

If you're reading this, it means you obviously have some shelter, and probably are well enough off to own a computer and afford the internet. That then tells me that you obviously have enough to eat.

So our career's might not be where we want them to be, or we may want a better income. We all have things we can complain about and be dissatisfied with. My point is that I think when we look at the big picture, we've got it better than we think.

My deepest wishes to you and yours this season, and I hope you are able to spend this day with loved ones. Let's remember to keep those men and women overseas who put themselves in harms way, a long way from their families, to protect us. May they experience peace today, have a good meal, and hopefully return home safely for good soon.

God Bless-
P. James
