Ah, Thanksgiving...that truly original American holiday of holidays we set aside to pay homage to and give thanks to the One who has blessed us so greatly these past few hundred years. Thank God we're members of the lucky sperm club.
You can't choose your parents and you can't decide what country you want to be born in, but those of us born in America, have parents who can out run border patrols or came here legally, have much for which to be thankful.
I know, I know; America is slip sliding away toward all out socialism which is going to "change" life as we've known it. Still, we have relative peace, aside from increasing crime, and prosperity compared to the rest of the world. If you have your health, what more could you ask for. If you are blessed to have an intact family, give them all a big hug and thank God you have each other.
Happy Thanksgiving America! Count your blessings and give thanks to God for his loving kindness and mercies. He has blessed us mightily and if we, as a people become guilty of the sin of ingratitude, we could lose these blessings faster than you can say, "there is no God."
