Happy Thanksgiving

Thursday, November 22, 2012

 

It's a day of reflection, of hands grasped and thanks given. Where else but here in this tiny state could a million people share unparalleled coastlines, historic settlements, feisty temperaments, and deep and diverse cultures?

In Rhode Island, where today we can all give thanks for the ongoing surprise of the country's liveliest experiment. On good days and on bad, in rich times and in lean, we prosper from the hustle-bustle of close quarters and share each others' wins and losses.

In Rhode Island, where everyone knows his or her governor, or feels they do.

We are small, indomitable, and should be thankful for the riches we possess.

Happy Thanksgiving, Rhode Island.
