IT’S ALMOST THANKSGIVING

                                                                                         
               IT'S ALMOST THANKSGIVING


                                                                    This November has quite a bit of anger and stress,


There is mistrust and a country becoming more divided.


Crime and rioting is an every day occurrence in our 
Nation and world,

It's almost Thanksgiving in a land of hostility  
And resentment.

As the holiday gets closer and the year's end closes in, 
We think,

We all lose or gain something, struggles may be few 
Or too much.

At times in our own world, fighting for our own 
Daily survival,

You are fortunate if on Thanksgiving there is a roof 
Over your head.

A bed in which you just came from, a warm fire,   
And some love,

To wake in good health, at times taken for granted 
Is precious.

It's almost Thanksgiving, a little less anger,   
A helping hand, or smile.

           Keith Garrett
