I don't mean to offend. It's probably going to happen anyway.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone.

It can be a hard thing in the modern world to take eyes off of the all too obvious problems in the world and focus on the good. Israel and Palestine are still at each others throats, our government is still most of the way down the progressive slippery slope, and the economy is toast.

That doesn't mean there isn't still good. Keeping that perspective can be difficult, which is part of the reason I think Thanksgiving is such a great tradition. Take a look around you without the cynicism bred into us by experience and see those parts of your world that are good.

For me, I was able to travel a thousand miles in a couple hours, from a school that is paying me to be there and better myself, back to a loving family. That on its own should be more than enough, but I have been blessed in so many more ways.

Have a happy Thanksgiving everyone, and remember that there is still lots of good in the world if only you can care to see it.

  1. And that, sir, is the essence of it all. The world may be going to you-know-where in a handbasket, but we all have things to be thankful for.
    Forget the macro picture. The world is still made of people, and those people have good in them.
    We are blessed.
