HAPPY THANKSGIVING

I extend to everyone a blessed and Happy Thanksgiving. Especially to those in the U.S. today who are feeling the pain of the recession. Those of you who have a loved one who won’t be with you this year because of war or other hardship or service. I wish you a blessed Thanksgiving.

To all of the people who used to hang up their childrens’ hand drawn turkeys on the wall, that are now just placed into a box or just tucked away in the pages of a book, because you have lost your home due to the economy and now have nowhere to hang them. I wish you a blessed Thanksgiving.

To all of the people who will not be cooking a turkey this year, because your oven along with most of your belongings is either in storage somewhere or was sold at a yard sale to pay a bill, I wish you a blessed Thanksgiving.

To everyone that just recently bought a lottery ticket with your last buck, thinking it’s your only hope, but knowing that it’s only just a dream. I wish you a blessed Thanksgiving.

To all those individuals who have worked the soup kitchens and food pantry’s the past year, and have seen the general situations of the people change from those individuals who have personal problems who will never work, to those who have been looking for a job and need help feeding their families. I wish you a blessed Thanksgiving.

To all the children and teens of the families who have had to either make sacrifices or give up some of the things we normally take for granted, like joining a team in school, going to a movie or even getting to go back to the same school this year as last year. I wish you a blessed Thanksgiving.

To all the little children who are too young to understand that their parents have gone to bed hungry many nights, so they could make sure you had enough to eat. One day you will ask questions and understand. I wish you a blessed Thanksgiving.

To those of you who have had to give up your beloved pets, because you just couldn’t keep them any longer. They were like family members and it hurts. I wish you a blessed Thanksgiving.

Finally, to everyone in America, and I can’t forget those of you who do understand what millions of people are going through, while hurting a little yourself, and still have found a way to give, help and donate to the jobless and homeless till it hurts. I wish you all a blessed Thanksgiving.

We can all still give thanks for just being able to be around anyone if we choose, even if it’s a stranger across the table at a soup kitchen. The days and times will change and someday we will each be forced to look back at these times because of an inquisitive question from a child, so that they may understand. It will only be then, that you will really understand for yourself, what you really have gone through now.

Happy Thanksgiving All.

America Together!
