Shoulders of Giants

Sir Isaac Newtown is often attributed with the following quote: If I have seen further it is only by standing on the shoulders of giants.

On this Thanksgiving, I want to acknowledge my gratitude for the shoulders on which I stand. I am only where I am because of the unconditional love and unending support that various people have given me.

While I am not a fan of commercialized holidays, which many of them have become, I am thankful for Thanksgiving because it is a day that promotes reflection.

I wish we, as individuals, as a society, and as a country, did it more often.

Enjoy your thanksgiving and all the delicious food.

More importantly, enjoy your family and friends.
