A Fresh Look At Thanksgiving


(You can receive this Blog via email by entering your address on the right.)

Here's a different way to look at your Thanksgiving Day, especially when things don't go as planned: 

Turkey not cooked perfectly? Tens of millions of people around the world will not even have a meal on Thanksgiving Day. It's only one of your multiple meals.

Stuck in traffic? Only 8.5% of the world's population have an automobile. It's only a delay.


House too small for your Thanksgiving festivities? Over 100 million people in the world don't even have a house. It's only for one day.


Flight delayed? Almost 95% of the world's population has never flown. It's only an inconvenience.

Lines too long on Black Friday? The median income worldwide is $2,000 ($5.50/day. For most people it's under $2/day). It's only an iPad.

Turkey too small to feed everyone? An estimated 75% of Americans are overweight. It's only another slice.
