We have been blessed indeed. Tomorrow marks a day that is dear to many of us. Thanksgiving day is the one day of the year that many of us reflect and give thanks for all the good that has transformed us into what we are. Veterans are a special group that we all need to be thankful that they are there. We should thank veterans and the men and women in the armed forces daily for insuring that we remain a free and safe country. I am like the rest of us and have a tendency to get somewhat careless and complacent. As I put things in perspective all of my quarrels with politics and the systems of this country seem so petty in comparison to the burden place on veterans and those in uniform today. As I continue to enjoy my daily freedoms, I will continuously thank those responsible and I hope you do as well.
