November 11 was my birthday, and I…

want to thank friends who wished me well.  As I’ve aged, I’ve come to decide Fall isn’t my favorite time of year because it’s my birthday.  It’s a time where we recognize there are a lot of reasons to be thankful.  If you’re a farmer, it’s a time to be thankful for a harvest.  If you’re a nature lover, it’s a time to be thankful for the lovely display Mother Nature offers us.  If you’re an American, it’s time to be thankful for those who protect our liberties, and I’m talking about soldiers.  Thank you for your service.

Sometimes, it is darkest before the dawn, as was famously quoted before I was even born, but when things seem like they’re out of control in the world, where can we turn for security?  I hope for our better angels to guide those in charge, but if that doesn’t work?  I’m wondering where the nearest bunker is because I don’t have one if my own.

I ask all one of you who follow me to put out as much positive energy as possible.  I believe we are in deep need of a hero, and it’s not anyone who is elected to office.

May we all…
