Holidays are such great times to pause and take stock. Often, when we take these moments to reflect we can find ourselves remembering times past, with the fullness of their trials and triumphs. This Thanksgiving we have much to be thankful for. But in the midst of our thanksgiving many are aware of the large troubles that confront us as a nation and a world. With wars abroad, an economy that hasn’t fully healed and the unique set of problems facing our country it can seem to some that the future is bleak.
Stephen Carter’s recent editorial in Bloomberg helps to provide some needed historical perspective, a way to view the present through the lens of the past. For while uncertainty abounds in this country of ours alongside it springs the promise of opportunity.
We wish you all a day away from the cares of the world and a Happy Thanksgiving!
