It's late but sincere...have a Happy Thanksgiving!

This is late but sincere.  Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

But while you're doing it consider a few things.  First this is basically a religious're giving Thanks to God for the blessing of the year, which has been turned into a secular eat and spend fest.

Something is wrong (in my opinion) with that.  Additionally I want you to think about this.  Many Christian organizations are jumping thru hoops to get Syrian Muslims into the US and Europe, yet at the same time are turning a blind eye to people in their own countries that are hurting...hungry...and desperate.  There is something wrong with that.

Last but not least, I can't help but think about what we're gonna see later tonight.  Consumerism on steroids.  People will rush out to buy stuff they don't need to satisfy a requirement that isn't there.  They will claw, punch, scratch...and a few will steal to meet this artificial need.


I really do hope you have a Happy Thanksgiving but I wish that all who read this to stop, consider and chart a different course from the average Westerner.

Dare to be different! Dare to think! It won't be easy and you will be ostracized for doing it but I really believe it's worth the effort.
