Happy Thanksgiving Thought Experiment

By Jerry | Blog

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving posts are usually about counting our blessings and giving thanks.  Steven Johnson compels us to consider this thought experiment:  If your daily newspaper were published once-in-a-century, and it came out today, what would the banner headline read?

This is, indeed, something to be truly grateful for: Human life expectancy at birth doubled, worldwide, over the last hundred years.

Here’s a video Steven Johnson referred to in his TED Talk; under two minutes:

I plan to listen to the Audible Book.  I recommend Audible Books.

Here’s a great poem, among many at https://www.weareteachers.com/thanksgiving-poems-for-kids/ (that’s for kids of all ages!).

Happy Thanksgiving 2020 – expressing our gratitude

By Jerry | Blog

Happy Thanksgiving 2020…tough times to gather together, and to go about the holidays as usual.  Yet we shouldn’t let tough times stop us from expressing our gratitude and prayers for the blessings we have – our gratitude and prayers for this Happy Thanksgiving 2020 – a difficult year to say the least.

We’re thankful for this “interwebs” thing, and for smartphones and other technology that helps us keep in touch with family and friends.  We’re thankful for much, including those in our household and workplace who we still get to see.  Even if sometimes only remotely.

Whether you’re a country music fan or not, here’s a great expression of gratitude from an an all-time favorite performer, a country – and gospel – music legend: Mr. Johnny Cash.
