Being Grateful, Giving Thanks

On this Thanksgiving Day, I find myself feeling amazingly grateful for all of the wonderful people I’ve met over the last few years. Your strength, stories and experiences remain with me every day.

Our country has been through many periods of prosperity and challenges. We have much to be grateful for and much to give thanks for in these more divisive times. We’ve faced far greater challenges. We will make it through these as well.

Grateful to live in a country where we have choices.

Thankful that people stand up and speak out so that others may hear their voices.


Grateful to live in a country where we have a free press.

Thankful that the press has a court system to challenge threats when under duress.


Grateful to live in a country where we have checks and balances.

Thankful that the House will begin reversing the last two years of nonchalance.


Grateful to live in a country where we can disagree on issues and remain civil.

Thankful that despite the intensity of our divisions our systems are not crippled.


Grateful to live in a country where we have elections and have our voices heard.

Thankful that regardless of outcomes that supporters have been stirred.
