“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.” -John F. Kennedy, American President.
“At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us.” -Dr. Albert Schweitzer, Medical Missionary
For those of us who will celebrate this Thanksgiving Day with family and friends, we are blessed indeed. Yet, there may be those among us who are living challenging lives in one way or another. In the words of Kennedy and Schweitzer, we find a way of dealing with challenges- It is in the act of reaching out to our fellow man.
