Mostly, today I'm thankful things aren't worse. Because they certainly could be.
I'm not going to give you some kind of lecture. This isn't a day for speeches or essays. It's a day for remembering what's good, and embracing it.
The world could be a lot worse off than it is today. I could be a lot worse off. We're not. I'm not. Some of that is through our own efforts -- and some of it is sheer dumb luck.
We're squeaking through. And that's a whole lot better than not squeaking through. Humanity has done it a lot of times. My ancestors and yours did so a lot of times. We have probably done so ourselves, more than once. Maybe we're not especially elegant or graceful about it; maybe, as a species and as individuals, we don't always do the very best thing. But we get through.
And I'm extremely thankful for that.
