A little word about a certain holiday...
Well, it looks like Thanksgiving is on its way pretty soon, in fact, a few days; and I know for certain that it is going to be very different this year than any other years in the past, and I think we can all understand why. I wish with all of my heart that I could take away the pain of each and every person who has lost a job and struggling to make ends meet, of each and every family who has lost a loved one due to this disease, and of each and every person who is now worrying about what this coming year is about to bring.
I can fully understand what all of us are going through. We are still in a pandemic, a health crisis that has been caused by the negligence and lies of a President who does not care about every single one of us in America but himself. Ever since he took the oath of office, I would begin fearing what would happen tragically if this then-new President would do something stupid that would put our country in severe jeopardy. And this year, just like that, my worst fears have come true: Our President has focused so very much on himself that he has let this pandemic happen and that our country becoming divided ruin. Why would our President do this to us? Why would Donald Trump have to have a cold heart, not to mention that he is selfish and narcissistic? And why would our President spend too much time on himself and his own political gain to allow our country to be destroyed like this?
Well, I am thankful to the Lord God that a much better President has been elected, a President who will lead our country out of this nightmare once and for all, and to restore our country back to whatever it would be any kind of "normal".

Meanwhile, I am still trying to wrap my mind over the fact that it would be a much different Thanksgiving this year, but somehow, we have to honor the holiday, no matter what's going to happen in the next month or so. Thanksgiving is a time in which we should give thanks for the things that we have been blessed with this year, and even if it's the small things or none at all, we still need to be thankful, no matter what. We should be thankful that we still have a family and that we are still somehow together, even if we have to be far away. We should be thankful for what we have, and we should be thankful for whatever goals we have achieved, in spite of what has been going on.
Let us bow our heads and pray that in the next year, we would have a much better new president sworn into office, and that he would finally restore our country back to the way it was before. A very happy & blessed Thanksgiving to one and all.
