A Time for Thanksgiving 2017

Thanksgiving has always been a time when we try to make lives better and reflect on all we should to be thankful for.

We must all be thankful that we live in the United States of America – The land of the free and the home of the brave.

I am thankful for the resolve of Sullivan County residents who are always willing to help those in need.

Thank you to all the wonderful volunteers providing thanksgiving meals to those who otherwise would have none.

Our firefighters, ambulance workers, members of civic and religious organizations continually go above and beyond their call of duty for us.

We must be thankful to all the members of our law enforcement community and those in the military who constantly risk their lives for us. These people have a spirit in them that words cannot express.

Thank you to our hardworking underpaid prosecutors who could earn so much more in the private sector. Thank you to all our hardworking members of our Judiciary.

Thank you to our dedicated Sullivan County workforce. 

The problems facing Sullivan County are very real, and it has become increasingly hard for people to enjoy a quality of life here. Hopefully that is beginning to change.

Although I am often critical of our elected officials – I am equally grateful for all they do.

Hopefully the “Mouth That Roars” column and the Sullivan County Post Facebook group assist in creating honest dialogue throughout Sullivan County. 

As family and friends gather during the next several weeks we should also remember that the holidays are not a joyous of time of year for many people. There are those who are alone and tend to become sad and lonely. Depression is known to occur more frequently, as the days get shorter and it becomes colder. We must be thankful to all our charitable organizations that are there for those in need.

Thanksgiving has become a difficult time of year for me since the horrific sexual assault and tragic passing of my developmentally disabled sister Paula. I pray that “Paula’s Law” mandating surveillance cameras be placed outside of all state run group homes and day programs will one day become law to protect our most vulnerable.

The holiday season is a time we should embrace all fellow human beings no matter their race, creed, color, sexual orientation, or socioeconomic status. Let’s all be thankful for what we have, and share the joy with those around us.

Dudley and Gracie are thankful for their loving home and they asked me to remind everyone to please leave out an extra bowl of food for that stray cat. 

Let’s keep the spirit of thanksgiving alive all year long.

Happy Thanksgiving!
