A Thanksgiving Reminder

By Deborah Goonan, Independent American Communities


Normally this blog is about the many, many issues faced by homeowners and other residents of homeowner, condominium, and cooperative associations.

Today I want to pause and be thankful that I and many of my readers have a safe place to live, a place to call home.

Unfortunately, too many people find themselves homeless, or living in unsafe, unsanitary conditions. They are struggling with unemployment, substance abuse, or mental illness. Others are fleeing domestic violence or war-torn homelands.

And as this NBC Nightly News report reveals, due to a shortage of safe, affordable housing, more and more families with children – including working families – are now included among the homeless.

But all across the US, private citizens are making a difference in their own communities and around the world.

Here’s a sampling of some of my favorite, heartwarming Thanksgiving stories.

Happy Thanksgiving to all my readers.
