Like most Anericans I overlook my obvious blessings and good fortune. There is no war where I live. I don’t experience violence close up. I have safe clean shelter and plenty of Food. Food! What an important resource. We can’t live without sustenance for long, but we take our abundance of nourishment for granted. I guess we are too busy in our decadent consumption. America’s favorite past times are shopping, be entertained, and inhaling large amounts of food. Tonight I’ve decided to slow down and appreciate what I have. Mansions, designer apparel, and jewelry aren’t items that I own. However, I have all that I need. Thank God. I have food.
