When thinking of prayer, I am reminded of the advice of my spiritual mentor, “keep your prayers simple,” she said. “Help me and Thank you.” I have been helped by so many of my veteran pals I have lost count. Thank you. Thank you.
There are times I wish that Thanksgiving was like Chanukah, an 8 day festival of thankfulness. We could then allow the depth of the meaning of gratitude to be a true compass. On this day of commemorating our appreciation of the gifts of family, total freedom of choice and our own talents, we could sally forth to make it part of our breakfast meal every day.
Possibly then E Pluribus Unum would return the lexicon of daily living.
Thank you American Veteran. Thank you!
