Thanksgiving in America 2011
It’s a sunny and chilly day on the Eastern seaboard of the USA today. A group of hungry pilgrims might have been starving and in trouble if they had not discovered Native Americans to help show them the way to surviving here. Yet, Americans more than survived.
Through the diversity of immigrants and their pursuit of liberty, fueled by self-determination, We the People flourished.
Our Founding Fathers created for us a beautiful instrument and design for government, our Constitution. We the People have been implementing the design and using it as intended to shape our future while managing our daily business.
Our upbringing influenced by various forms of religions and beliefs call for humility as we seek to perfect our nation in pursuit of a good life for all people.
Matured by an expanding history and body of knowledge, some visionaries believe that the optimum state of our existence can be refined by living within our means. That requires setting and managing limits that optimize our population size with our resource capacity. Seeking a new model for prosperity and sustainability are words that emanate from our political leaders of all parties.
Implications are needs for a new economic model and changes and improvements that address systemic problems.
To develop a positive force in shaping our future, Americans need the best and brightest people to be our representatives and leaders in both government and private enterprise. Stewardship is needed by people with genius and practical abilities, with knowledge and skills to address exceedingly complex needs and problems. We the People need a culture of collaboration and consensus-building from our representatives and that will require immediate change in how things are going now.
To ensure our future, American needs a productive government that is a partner with individuals and their private enterprise to design and develop a sustainable future. That is the vision and desire I think we share this day.
For better outcomes, I dedicate this Thanksgiving.
