With all the terrible things that have been going on lately, it’s easy to forget just how lucky we are to be living in this country of relative peace, security, and freedom. We live in a country where almost no one dies of starvation or malnutrition, where one of the deadliest viruses known to man caused little more than a scare, and where the death of one or two people causes massive protests with the potential to trigger major governmental changes. While the fact that we are humans means that our systems will never be perfect, we clearly live in one of the greatest countries in the history of the world! God bless you all, and God bless the USA! Merry Christmas! Happy Hanukkah! Happy Kwanzaa!
