Dear friends, it has become a Thanksgiving tradition for me to share what I am most grateful for. Of course, the usual response, appropriately so, is to express my gratitude for my amazing wife, Lynda; my children and grandchildren; my extended family of four cats, four goats and six chickens, and the numerous friends and supporters I have around the world.
I also have a deep sense of gratitude for all the people who work in and support our businesses. From the practitioners in our clinic, the customer-support team, and the people who so willingly and ably do our marketing and website, I am grateful for and touched by their dedication, insight and good humor.
This year, I also want to express my thanks to something akin to my higher self, or maybe my better self, or sometimes I think it's my guardian angel, who has helped me craft a life in which I experience the gift of fighting for truth and justice. I truly believe that if I ever reached a point in which I didn't believe that the words I speak, or the people and causes I support, or even the products and services we offer didn't fundamentally help to create a healthier, more just world, few other things would matter.
The support of my friends and family allows me to carry on, but the real task is simply to help the world be a better place than when I found it.
Together we can do this. Join me.
