Excerpt from the Book

"How thankful are you?

Every year at Thanksgiving time North Americans make a great show of their gratitude, most often expressed as gratitude to God.  Thanksgiving, at least in the U.S., leads directly to the Christmas holiday where gifts are given to friends and family as an expression of heartfelt love and appreciation.  Good holiday feelings seem to give way each year to a renewed focus on self as resolutions to get in shape, lose weight and manage money better overwhelm the holiday spirit.

A thankful heart can be recognized any day of the year.  Perhaps it should be recognized for a moment each and every day.  Service to our fellow beings is an appropriate expression of gratitude any time. 

Hunger: There are 870 million people in the world who are hungry.  Starvation will kill more people than AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis combined.  Even in America there are people who are hungry.  Most Americans, however, really don’t remember being hungry apart from self-imposed diets.  How grateful for food are you?  That question might best be answered by this question:  how much food have you shared lately?

Birth Defects:  Babies are born every day all around the world with easily fixed birth defects that are not fixed only because their families lack the funds to have them treated.  Not only do most people in the developed world not suffer from these birth defects, Spina bifida, cleft palates, and common bladder problems, but when we do, they are promptly and efficiently treated.  In developing countries, these birth defects may have a dramatic impact on a poor child now treated even worse because of a tragic but treatable fluke of fate.  How grateful are you to have been born healthy?  What have you done lately to help those who aren’t so fortunate?

Homelessness:  There are approximately 1.7 billion people in the world who are either homeless or without adequate housing.  In the U.S., the homeless population includes many who are afflicted with mental illness or addictions.  The problem of homelessness exists in every major metropolis around the world; no country is exempt.  LGBT youth comprise about 40 percent of homeless youth in the U.S.  How grateful are you for adequate housing?  What have you done lately for the homeless in your community?

About 75 percent of Americans give something to charity each year.  You’re probably among them.  You’d likely want to do more.  By conscientiously working toward giving more to a cause that you care about, you can organize your time and your money to enable you to ennoble others."
