I’ve just re-read my posts for Thanksgiving from the past several years. I have opted to use parts of an older post from me. I have written of our need to grow in gratitude, not just on Thanksgiving Day, but throughout the entire year.
This is always true, but especially for Canadians who have been so blessed. I’ve written before about being part of the two percent. I’m not part of the global elite that composes the one percent.
Nor am I part of the vast majority of people around the world who live in poverty, hunger, the lack of a secure homeland, fear, violence war or powerlessness. No, I am definitely somewhere near the top of the pile.
