A Closer Look at – Why we give thanks

American’s Thanksgiving celebrations are echoed in many cultures around the world – the desire to give thanks to a bountiful harvest, a moment to reflect on the good things in our lives and our families. If you’ll be joining your family and friends for a meal this weekend, you might be asked ‘what is it that you are thankful for?’. Some will name that which is right in front of them – their family, their friends, a feast to share …

Let me suggest one other thing to be thankful for; that glass of water that sits at your place at the table. Over one billion people will not have access to clean drinking water tomorrow. And the next day.
