by Randy Shaw, 2012-11-21We wish all of our readers a joyful Thanksgiving holiday and a restful long weekend. We particularly wish joy and rest to all of those who devoted time this year to improving their neighborhood, city, state, nation and/or the world. It can be stressful and not always rewarding trying to make a positive difference in people’s lives, which is why many do not make the effort. For those who have and will continue to do so, take the next days to recharge your batteries for the post-holiday days. Your positive energies will be needed as we head toward a new year.
