Sometimes it's hard to stay positive living in a country riddled by job losses, involved in two wars, sharply divided on major political issues, and reeling for economic recovery.
But since today is Thanksgiving 2009, let's try to take a step back, spend some time with friends and family, and count our blessings.
We live in a country in which there are many wonderful things we have to be thankful for -- things we all too often take for granted. I compiled this list of 11 such things that immediately came to mind, but I need your help determining which ones are also on your mind -- and your participation to add to the list.
Each of these slides will mean different things to different people, and that's OK. Collectively, I'm curious how they'll stack up.
