It may well be that the United States is now facing one of the toughest economic periods we have known for a while . But I am convinced , nothing that hits us will destroy all that , and granting as much will help us recover . This Thanksgiving will itself be something to be grateful for if we really do turn our attention to the marvels of our time , our place , our lives , for here lies rejuvenation , a source of energy and inspiration .
Facing reality matters but , does not mean just facing what’s worrisome , but what’s encouraging .
Happy Thanksgiving , all
