Giving Thanks at Thanksgiving

Living in an abundant country like Canada, it is easy to take the basic necessities of life for granted. Access to food, clean water, clothes, education, free speech are some of the things many of us overlook. As we watch the news or read the newspaper, it is easy to feel detached from this chaotic world around us. Wars, natural disasters and persecution are just a few of the headlines that scream out at us. While the media tells us that the economy is making a comeback, on the streets and in many homes, the news is different. Some of us are unemployed, homeless, sick, hungry or just trying to make ends meet.

This Thanksgiving, while celebrating with friends and family, working, walking, bike riding, whatever, take a moment and give thanks for all that you have.

Happy Thanksgiving!!
