There’s so much in the political world taking place and you can read all about it with just a few mouse clicks. Of course, we’re all on edge after the November 13 terrorist attacks in Paris, especially since ISIS has more or less, indicated that we’re next.
ISIS is going to strike us, I have no doubt. But we don’t know when. In making those threats, they know we’re right upon a widely celebrated American holiday, Thanksgiving. Throughout this long holiday weekend there are going to be many events taking place. There will be parades, sporting events, shopping, parties, and the list goes on. Many, many people will be taking to the streets for the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade. There are going to be so many sporting events taking place including, but not limited to the Iron Bowl that will take place in my home state of Alabama on the campus of Auburn University at Jordan-Hare Stadium. All of the malls will be open to Black Friday shoppers and those stupid enough to get in the fray (I’d rather be boiled in oil than go shopping on Black Friday). In addition to what I have mentioned, people will be traveling and going through our nation’s airports tomorrow, the biggest travel day of the year.
America’s mayor, Rudy Giuliani, is continuing to communicate the message he gave to the nation after the 9/11/2001 attacks. That message is don’t let those evil terrorists tamper with our traditional America celebrations. Stare down those evil ones who seek to disrupt our way of life. We have our way of live because our values are based on the Ten Commandments and Judeo/Christian principles and our capitalist economic system causes us to prosper like no other on the planet. Thus, we have beautiful shopping malls for those who wish to get in the fray can get in the fray on the Friday after Thanksgiving. We also have magnificent sporting events where over a million Americans gather to cheer their favorite teams onto victory. If you’re not lucky enough to have a ticket to your team’s event, you might choose to check out the many sports bars and restaurants to watch your game.
Bottom line is that millions of Americans are out and about on this glorious weekend where we give thanks to God for setting us down in or bringing us to this great country. While many of us disagree with what this administration is currently doing and sincerely believe that it’s the administration’s goal to destroy the United States of America as we know it, we’ll continue the fight to take back our country as we celebrate all of the wonderful things our country has to offer.
When my Mom and Dad were alive, Thanksgiving was always a big thing at our house. Often, we had family and friends over, but sometimes it was just the three of us. Mama and Daddy loved Thanksgiving and so do I. What’s not to live about a holiday where you get to eat wonderful food, but don’t have the stress of having to spend lots of money on gifts and worrying about getting the right gift for the right person? Eat, sleep, watch football, shop, etc. Who could ask for anything more?
In closing, I want to thank each and every one of you who have supported me as I continue to work to get my messages across to as many folks out there as possible. I hope each and every one of you have a joyous and happy Thanksgiving. I love you, I really do!
