As always, my thoughts on Thanksgiving go to those American men and women in our Armed Forces who are walking an increasingly shaky line at distant posts around the world. We give thanks for them, and we give thanks for those who paid the ultimate price for our freedom. We remember the heroes of Benghazi, abandoned by their leaders, who saw their duty and never faltered. Give thanks for our increasingly shredded Constitution that has stood as a bulwark against the worst excesses of our politicians for more than 2 centuries. Give thanks for the American people, who have consistently proven that they know and understand more than their leaders give them credit for. Finally, spend some time with your family...and stay the heck out of malls!
We have a lot to be thankful for this year, not the least of which is that it is almost over. It has been a tough year for all of us.
Take a break, have some turkey, give thanks...
