Thankful for All of You

What a year it has been since the 2016 election. Sometimes we don't know whether to scream or yell. Other times, we don't know if we can take another hit in the long fight. And sometimes, we feel like we can't lose.

I think the Nov. 7 election two weeks ago falls into the last category. Wasn't the waking up this November a bit more fun than last November? At least on the state level? Well done to those who ran, volunteered and canvassed.

While we have a fight on our hands now with the so-called tax reform, we do have a lot for which to be thankful. We march. We organize. We connect. We resist.

Congress and the General Assembly are on notice that we are a sustained force to be reckoned with. We are more engaged in our government and more conscious of our rights. This is an amazing thing.

So, today, from the board of directors to you, Happy Thanksgiving. We are so thankful for each and everyone of you and all you do in the service of others.
