Here in a America we will be celebrating our Thanksgiving.
So for my brothers and sisters here in the USA, I wish you all a blessed and happy gathering. And for my brothers and sisters on the rest of our blue-green planet, pull up a chair, there's always room at the table.
For most of us the joy of present loved ones will be mixed with the honey-dipped pain of those absent.
So let's join hands and ask for gratitude for what we have, grace for those we've lost and grit for the road ahead.
Now please pass me a drumstick.
