On Thanksgiving

Yesterday, I was going to write the standard "things I'm thankful for" Thanksgiving entry, but it just wouldn't write.

This morning, I finally realized why that was -- the attacks in Mumbai.

It's hard to sit here, counting my blessings -- taking a moment to note that, even setting aside our current economic downturn, this is still a totally amazing awesome country in which I live -- when I am reading about people who hate us so much they're taking hostages and particularly looking for people with US and UK passports.

There is so much to be thankful for ... and there's also so much work yet to be done.

Peace to all.
