Thanks Given

On this day I give thanks that I live on in reasonable comfort, that most of my family is in good health and thriving, and that my country and many of its citizens have awakened to the reality that two of the three branches of our government are in the hands of those who care not one whit for us, and couldn't get it right even if they did.

William's Whimsical Words:

From every mountainside, let freedom ring.
