We have much to be thankful for. For consecutive centuries we have been born into higher and higher levels of prosperity. Every day we take for granted thousands of the facets of daily life which enable us to more easily enjoy every minute of being on this earth. The hard work and determination of others has driven the success of mankind. Improvement of self and exchange of goods and services is the core of the progression of technology which has birthed the world we live in today. Thanksgiving is truly an understatement as any word in any language will always serve when describing the world we live in today relative to the world of our ancestors.
