Think to Thank Part 2

Maybe we should step back and think a little bit as we approach Thanksgiving Day. There are a lot of problems with our nation, but there is also a lot of good. Our Founders knew what they were doing to protect our democracy by the Constitution they gave to us.  We would do well to…

We have to think to become thankful. We have to think to be aware of the things done for us; the cost and sacrifice involved in the doing of those things. We have to think to become appreciative and grateful. We have to think to express our appreciation and gratitude. That’s why the story of…

Daniel
