Guest Editorial: "What are you thankful for this week?"

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

During this Thanksgiving week here are just a few things for which, perhaps, we can all be grateful together.

• For America's founders, for giving us a government that will work if we will only elect good people to represent and lead us.

• For caring doctors, nurses and healthcare workers in spite of an ailing healthcare system.

• For freedom of religion and freedom from religious oppression, when so many in the Middle East die for lack of that each day.

• Thankful that in the face of a continuing worldwide economic recession, America is still by far the prettiest girl at the dance.

• For clean drinking water, when 780 million people on earth live without it.

There are many negative things in this world and in our personal lives to be sure, but I believe each of us can always find something to be grateful for. My short list for Thanksgiving is a happy and healthy family, especially a 1-year-old grandson.

What are you thankful for this Thanksgiving week?

    It is important that families spend more time together, and one of the best times to do that is dinner time.
