On Thanksgiving Eve let’s remember the many blessings we all enjoy in this great country of ours. Sure we’ve got problems, very serious ones, but with history as a guide and the courage to make tough choices we can solve our problems and move ahead. Reach out to a neighbor in need and I hope you all have a blessed Thanksgiving Day surrounded by family and friends.
