Yesterday (November 27, 2019) . . . I Wrote an Editorial which Received a Great Deal of Positive Reaction (Comments & Emails) from the Readers of Galganov.com, which Dealt with Timely Issues Surrounding our Perpetual Global Battle Between Freedom & Communism (Socialism).
What I Didn’t Write About . . . or even Mention, which is Something I Really Should Have, which is More Important than the Mess in which we are Engulfed . . . THANKSGIVING.
THANKSGIVING . . . Is the Only Day of Thanks in America (Canada’s Thanksgiving Was Several Weeks Earlier), where all Religions & People who Believe or Don’t Believe in Religion, can Come Together in Common Cause, to Celebrate all those things for which we should Give Thanks, Regardless of Color, Gender, Age, National Origin Etc.
Being a Canadian Living Temporarily in the United States of America, I get to Feast Twice . . . And Twice Enjoy the Freedoms & “Things” Around me which have Meaning.
MATERIAL WEALTH HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH IT:
Rich Or Poor . . . Other Than For Those who are Amongst the Most Unfortunate, we all have Reason to Celebrate & Give Thanks to Whomever or Whatever We Believe In . . . for the Simplest Things we Have to the Most Amazing, like Waking-Up in the Morning to See & Know that the Sun is Once Again Shining.
Anne & I are Far from having “Real Money” . . . and Just like Most other People, we Worry about Tomorrow, we Measure what we Can & Cannot do (spend), as we Gauge what we can Afford to do . . . But We Have So Much For Which To Give Thanks – We Don’t Know Where To Begin.
Anne & I Have Each Other, we Have Stryker, April the Cat, our Horses, our Family and our Friends. As I’m getting Older, I take more Medication to Start my Day, and some before I go to Sleep. But Nonetheless, We’re Here & Still Going Strong.
We Eat Well, Sleep as well as we Can at our Age, Get Around, and have our Wits About Us. We Still Care for our Nation, our Communities & Most Important Of All – We Cherish & Give Thanks For Our Freedoms.
And I Don’t Leave You Out . . . I am Especially Thankful for the Number of People who Read my Blog and Do & Say what You Can to make a Difference.
We Feel Especially Blessed . . . to be Able to Live Half a Year in Canada during the Moderate Canadian Summer, and Half a Year in the USA during the Moderate Central Texas Winter.
And Later Today . . . Anne & I will Give Thanks with more than a Dozen of our American Friends at a Thanksgiving Supper, where everyone will Contribute Something.
And 100% . . . We Will Talk Politics – And Most Assuredly, we’ll Get Pissed-Off & Argue, which is Something Else we Have to Give Thanks For . . . For Having the Right to Speak our Mind, Debate, and Have the Civility to do so without Coming to Blows in a Free Society, where Freedom of Expression Is The FIRST AMENDMENT . . . to the Greatest Man-Made Document Ever Created.
Therefore . . . I was Remiss Yesterday by Not Wishing All of My American Friends a Wonderful Thanksgiving. But I Won’t Be Remiss Today . . .
Happy Thanksgiving – Since We Mostly All Have Something For Which To Give Thanks.
Best Regards . . . Howard Galganov
