Happy and safe Thanksgiving to all.
I was listening to a radio talk show yesterday and many people were calling in on the subject as to "what do we have to be thankful for". Most of course were positive, some were negative based on the current conditions of our country and individuals out of work and what not. One guy called in and pretty much summed it up. He reminded everyone of all that we Americans have to be thankful for (and take for granted). It was a long list which included many examples of what current technologies have offered which included the reminder of what our parents and grandparents had to deal with compared to our own generation. Tons of luxuries were of course on the list too. The best example he kept referring back to was paved roads, reminding us just what that alone affords us, and that many countries still today don't have paved roads and have to deal with some pretty nasty conditions during wet weather.
If your not thankful today than you are either too lazy to make a change, or feel entitled to have more than you deserve. Don't dwell on the bad things, think about the good things.
