It is Thanksgiving Day in the U.S., a day devoted to feeling gratitude for the bounty in one's life, to savoring splendid arrays of holiday food, and to gathering with family and friends. Life's gifts take many forms -- civil and religious freedoms, the caring of loved ones, the small moments of beauty and grace which surround us every day.
My wish for today is simple -- that we each pause to notice all the precious things we enjoy, which others in the world may not. Having noticed, I hope that we will find ways to share our good fortune, to lessen inequality and hardship, making life better for all. Imagine.
