Jedi Defender would like to wish a happy and safe Thanksgiving Holiday, and to remember what we have to be thankful for that others may not have. It's important we all try to do our best to donate to local organizations trying to help those facing financial hardships. The sheer number of gift trees I see locally is a sobering reminder how many are struggling right now.
