Last week most of America enjoyed a hearty Thanksgiving meal with all of the fixings. Turkey, stuffing, potatoes, and pumpkin pie was a mere sampling of what was on most dining room tables across the country. It was a day to get together with family and friends, share, and reflect on the things in life that we are most thankful for.
There is another story happening though, and it is not a joyous one. The United States is oft considered a place of opportunity. It is a place that other nations aspire to be like. It is a place where everyone has a chance at making something of themselves. Well in this economy there are those who go to bed hungry each and every day. There are those that have to make the choice between a hot meal and a warm blanket. Yes, even here there are those in need.
