 It would seem that the ingratitude, whereby a subsequent sin causes the return of sins previously forgiven, is a special sin. For, the giving of thanks belongs to counter passion, which is a necessary condition of justice. But justice is a special virtue. Therefore this ingratitude is a special sin. Thanksgiving is a special virtue. But ingratitude is opposed to thanksgiving. Therefore ingratitude is a special sin.                                                                            Thomas Aquinas

Let’s hope that the occupiers remember and take to heart that they are “one of the lucky ones” in that they live in the freest, and therefore richest countries ever to have inhabited planet earth.

I leave it to you to determine which occupiers I refer to.

Happy Thanksgiving to one and all: I truly appreciate all of you coming and sharing in my daily national therapy session!

Enjoy your families, your turkey or tofurky and count your blessings on this , our national day of Thanksgiving.
