It’s very easy to get caught up in the day to day, our survival, our self concern; all of them the most important to our lives. It’s easy to take for granted the air we breathe and the water we drink, the food we eat, those concerns quickly displaced by our jobs, paying bills, raising a family; by politics and differences, by so many other things that are so immediate and right in front of us. But on this thanksgiving I would like to give thanks to this planet, Earth. And I am thankful for this life I live, right now, that I get share in it will all of humanity.
