It’s Thanksgiving, and I’m thankful.
I’m thankful for the men and women building our two new bridges and reconfiguring Spaghetti Junction. You don’t see empty equipment sitting idly by while traffic creeps along. They’re working around the clock in all kinds of weather. They’re minimizing the disruption and working as quickly and safely as they can. Hats off to the folks at Walsh Construction.
I’m thankful for a job I enjoy, working with people I care for, for a company that is a great place to work, and in a city that’s vital and alive.
And I’m thankful for volunteers who contribute time, talent and treasures to make life easier and better for others, who work so hard to make our communities better places to live. They could easily just go home and leave it to someone else, but instead, they give of themselves.
I’m thankful that I have the privilege to live in this country, as imperfect as it may be. Oh, we have our share of problems. But we also have bountiful natural resources and many good and honorable core values, our currency is the world standard, and the world speaks our language. Oh yes, we are the only country in the world that has the U of L/ Kentucky game this weekend. We have an embarrassment of riches.
I’m Bill Lamb, and from my Point of View, here’s to a Happy Thanksgiving to you and your families.
