Happy Thanksgiving! I want to offer my annual Thanksgiving poem: "I look up at the sky and give thanks for the rain, hail, and snows; to fulfill our needs as only our creator knows. We complain about the heat, the cold, and the rain; but we're given a variety to keep us sane. The dark clouds may come, but a rainbow will appear, to comfort and tell us our creator is near. We're given the seasons — summer, fall, winter, and spring; each with their own weather they do bring. Symbolizing a beginning, growth, and death. But the wind keeps on blowing and never runs out of breath. We have acquired the knowledge of the sky, and will keep on learning, that's no lie. As a shower that moves through and off to the east, this I would like to say at least: 'Have a great Thanksgiving and a wonderful feast.' "
