Have you noticed that no matter how poor people are, anywhere in the world, they are all engaged in a desperate struggle for survival? 
 
No matter how bad their life is, they want more of it.
 
This survival instinct is mirrored by all people no matter their material status.
 
Life must be pretty good if people cling to it so tenaciously.

Part of the reason is that we don’t know whom to thank because the Illuminati have stolen God. God is the magnificent power that gave us the gift of life.

Not only do we not feel gratitude, we devote a ton of energy to being actively ungrateful.

 Thanksgiving is a time to think about the glass half-full rather than half-empty, a time to think of what’s right instead of what’s wrong. 
 
And while many have been traumatized by politics, we can be grateful that we still have democracy and a large measure of freedom.  Let’s not take that for granted either.
