Subject: RE: BS: Happy Thanksgiving America!
Martin, you are right - conservatives AND liberals are constantly fixing up each others mistakes. I was speaking for myself when I brought up one of the reasons I am thankful. I am also a bit taken aback when I see others who consider themselves to be liberals that spout nothing but doom and gloom. As you point out, the glass should not be considered half empty. Challenges should not be considered roadblocks. Eyes on the prize.

I also think you summed it up perfectly - you do not need a family or country to be thankful. The holiday does celebrate those institutions, but it is a special day where we can reflect on the gifts we have received in our daily lives.   Often we ignore the simple and beautiful things in life including our freedoms.
