Happy Thanksgiving from Fenton, Michigan

Many messages are viewed this time of year with images of Pilgrims, turkeys, and pumpkins. Radio and airwaves resonate this time of year with advertising specials. Rather than bore you with yet another historical treatise on the roots of our unique American tradition, or pass along one more complaint on seasonal commercialism, I want to pass along a personal observation:

What a wonderful country we live in!

Despite political debate, we enjoy a freedom unmatched anywhere or anytime in the history of mankind. The prairies grow enough wheat to help feed the hungry in other less-fortunate lands. The economic output of some American States surpasses the gross national product of some countries. This is not bragging. Rather, it is a realistic assessment of the leadership role afforded America. Thus it behooves you and me to be . . thankful.

This Thanksgiving—as you eat turkey and pumpkin, remember there are others less fortunate. Please be thankful for all the blessings in your life. Happy Thanksgiving from Fenton, Michigan!
