Dear Friends,

I would like to take a moment and give thanks for all that we have.

Thanks that we live in the greatest country in the world.

Thanks that no matter how bleak the outlook we seem always to be able to find the support to pull through.

It was a few short years ago that America was devastated but we were never defeated.

Families were broken but not destroyed.

Our faith was shaken but hope was not lost.

With the eyes of the world upon us we pulled ourselves up.

Petty prejudices were forgotten.

The lines that so often had separated us were forgotten.

No one spoke of race, religion or political affiliation.

We were one family that had been severely hurt and we responded as a family.

We did not ask how or why we needed to help, we just did.

We need not forget how we responded that day as a nation.

We need never forget that every member of our collective family deserves the same treatment today.

No tragedy is too small.

No trauma too insignificant.

For it is never too far removed from each and every one of us, especially in today's political climate.

Let us continue to give thanks that we have each other.

So on this Thanksgiving I give thanks to my country, my family and my friends.

And I pray that we continue to allow ourselves to be teachable and never forget that every problem has a solution.

We just need to continue working together to find it.

Happy Thanksgiving
