Except in Seattle, where today is a day of mourning, I want to wish all of you a safe and peaceful Thanksgiving. Unless, of course, your family is like mine was.
Every Thanksgiving used to turn out as the start of a feud somewhere in the family. I'd sit on the sidelines and enjoy the show.
When you sit down today to give thanks, please remember all those who are working to protect you and your way of life:
Members of our Armed Forces
Doctors and Nurses
And others I've forgotten. And don't forget, not all troops are in harms way - Some are in Germany, Japan, U.S. Embassies - and even those stationed in the States who aren't allowed to go home for today.
Watch the Macy's Parade, have your turkey and ham, watch the Packers slap the Lions around - but think about those who are protecting you.
