As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them. - John Fitzgerald Kennedy

I have tried to stick to a schedule of posting Monday, Wednesday and Fridays...but it's Thanksgiving so I thought I would find a quote and a picture and let it speak for itself.  I don't know why but this quote from JFK was the one that spoke to me and then I searched for a photo to accompany it.  It wasn't until after I posted it that I saw the date well doesn't that speak for itself.  We have come a long way and have a long way to go... today not only am I thankful for my family and friends but grateful for strong leaders, advocates and ordinary people that do extraordinary acts.  Those among us whom dedicate their lives for peace and justice and the collective good of our nation and our big world that becomes a bit smaller every day.  We have many to admire past, present and future some from afar and others sitting next to us.

Have a blessed Thanksgiving today and carry it with you to tomorrow...
