I think Andrew Tobias said it best on his blog this Thanksgiving Day;
“As I’ve said so often in this space, almost all of us live better than the kings of England, czars of Russia, pharaohs of Egypt ever did. We have magic carpets with seats that recline; we have jesters, bards, gladiators and orchestras on instant call (with volume control and a pause button). We have cell phones, antibiotics, zippers — Velcro, even — Novocain and aspirin.
We . . .
have . . .
I am thankful for these things and for that which can’t be counted or measured, the love of my family and friends. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving Day.
