Here it is Thanksgiving week, and we as Americans have a lot for which to be thankful.
We live in the greatest land in the world. We as a people are extremely generous and resourceful. America offers tremendous opportunity for anyone who believes in themselves and is willing to step out and offer their goods or services for sale.
Unfortunately, we are still in a period of extreme hardship for many. The Northborough Food Pantry is busier than ever and the need for organizations such as Friends of Families in Transition continues to grow.
This is week 200 of Barack Obama's Presidency
