Let me be the first to say " HAPPY THANKSGIVING" We do not all celebrate this day and if you don't that is ok. Let us remember the ones that will not have hot meals or warm homes on this day, if you can find time to go to a shelter and help dish out meals to the homeless. We go every year and have done so for the last 8 years my young children and I give back to the community by helping at the shelters. We must remember that the people on the street are not any less proud then we are, they just ran upon hard times. yes there are some people that want to be on the streets because they cant handle certain things however that is not their fault either, they need medical services and it is not cheap to get those services. Alot of them are our VETERANS and they have not been able to deal with coming home and life is easier for them on the streets. This is also a shame since they should be getting the treatments they need after all they are OUR veterans and they did fight for our freedom. So on that thought, while you are eating please take a moment to say a prayer for all the ones that are not as fortunate as you are.
