THERE ARE STILL SO MANY THINGS TO BE GRATEFUL FOR
by Sharon Rondeau
(Nov. 24, 2010) — I didn’t really think about writing a Thanksgiving message until late today, when I realized that despite the turmoil in our land and in all branches of government, there is much for which we must thank God.
- LCDR Walter Fitzpatrick will celebrate Thanksgiving in a jail cell, a dungeon, rather than as a free man as he should. But we will continue the battle against Monroe County corruption until his freedom is achieved and all of the real criminals are themselves behind bars. Walt’s story has helped to raise awareness throughout the nation about the corruption which has spread like a disease throughout our judicial, executive and legislative branches of government at the local, state and federal levels.
- There are brave and brilliant patriots in this country who have begun initiatives to restore the U.S. Constitution as the law of our land who will not quit until the goal is achieved. This includes removing an illegitimate usurper from the office of the presidency, reining in the courts, and holding legislators accountable for their actions. We thank God for the founders of this country who achieved freedom from oppression 234 years ago and for the example they set so that we can do so once again.
- We are a resourceful people, and despite the hardship and lack of resources that are on the horizon, we will find strength that we never knew we had.
- We have our husbands and wives, our children, our parents and even our grandparents if we are so fortunate. We have grandchildren and aunts and uncles if we are lucky, and we have the images of those we have lost in our hearts forever.
- We recognize God, not man, as our guide and source of hope, and we are thankful for the strength he gives us to persevere and do His work.
- We are fortunate to live in the nation which George Washington, Samuel Adams, Thomas Jefferson and James Madison founded. These men demonstrated what real statesmanship and citizenship are.
- I am grateful to John Charlton for starting The Post & Email and all of the support it has garnered in just a little over one year of internet presence.
- More than anything, we have the ability to survive in tough times, and to come through them as better people. We know in our hearts that what’s important is not things, but rather, how we live our lives, deal with others, uphold our Constitution, and answer to God.
Have a blessed Thanksgiving.
