Tonight, on the eve of a national holiday about giving thanks, I want to do exactly that…regardless of the dark forces that dare to confront us in the light of day; the monsters, seen and unseen, that threaten all that is beautiful. Because if there is one constant in this world of ours, it is that the sun will set, and the next morning, it will rise anew. And when that moment comes, I will stand at the window, and I will give thanks for the sunlight on my face and the air in my lungs. Should it happen to rain, I will walk outdoors and greet it, and then I will dance. I will face the day, and I will cherish it.
