Thanksgiving is just around the corner, a time to reflect and be appreciative. In the United States, the economy is weak and many Americans have lost their jobs and/or their homes. While many of us will know frustration and disappointment, few will truly experience hunger. For this I am thankful. However, let us not forget that there are many families in Haiti and elsewhere struggling to feed themselves. Even during the hard times, we can make a difference with the most modest contributions of time or money.
