THIS THANKSGIVING weekend, I am thankful for much. I have been blessed with many good things. Good friends, a great family, great parents, and a pretty good life.
One thing I have felt more blessed about recently is the decision of my grandfather and great grandfather to stay in Canada, and not move, like many of their relatives, south of the border.
I have many friends and some relatives in the U.S. My wife’s mom was an American, and my brief sojourns to the U.S. have been enjoyable. But with the state of the country as it is now, and the incoherent diatribe that is not only coming from the Head of State, but the Congress, Senate and State governments, it amazes me that the U.S. can continue to stay intact.
