A friend had to put her pup down. Businesses are slack in paying their invoices. Hooligans broke into the Boise zoo and killed one of the monkeys. The environment’s in peril. We’re about to dive headlong over a fiscal cliff. The biggest whiners are wanting to secede from the Union. The modern-day slave trade is alive and well. There are wars and rumors of wars.

Sometimes a steady gaze upon our own situation, a glance at the news, and we begin to wonder where we might offer thanks.
