Giving Thanks for Our Broken World and Hoping for Peace

Today is Thanksgiving here in the United States.  A day when most of us spend time with people we love, eat too much and hopefully think about all that we have to be thankful for in our lives.  It's a messed up world.  War, hunger and destruction all over the place.  Yet, there are pockets of hope, people coming together from many cultures, faiths, traditions, all calling for and working towards the basics that make life bountiful: safety, housing, food, education, and protection of our environment.

These videos are representative of some of these voices.  I know that I have many, many things to be thankful for and one of them is all the wonderful relationships that have come through this blog and other cyber networks.  We may live far from each other, but we may also keep each other close to our hearts.

May you be surrounded by peace and love in your corner of the world!  Happy Thanksgiving!
