This has been a difficult year for reasons I won’t rehearse today, but there’s still a lot to be thankful for. This year, most of it is local rather than national. I’m thankful for family, the blessings of my wife and children; I’m thankful for friends old and new; for good health; for colleagues and the opportunity to do good work in my profession; for peace and prosperity in my corner of the world.

What are you thankful for, this year?
