Wishing Our American Friends and Neighbours a Safe and Peaceful Thanksgiving

A Brief Message from Niagara At Large reporter and publisher      Doug Draper

Posted November 26th, 2020 on Niagara At Large

Along with all of our readers in Niagara and other regions of Southern Ontario, Niagara At Large is pleased to say that we have regular visitors to this news and commentary site from the Buffalo, New York area and other regions in the United States.

With those NAL readers across the border in mind, I want to wish all of them on this American Thanksgiving – November 26th, 2020 – a warm and peaceful Thanksgiving, and a safe and healthy one during times unlike any most of us have ever experienced before.

One of the many things you have to be thankful for – even during these final days of November when cases of COVID-19 on both sides of the Canada-U.S. border continue to climb, and in many parts of the U.S. appear to have soared out of control – is that your long day’s journey into night with Donald Trump and his crime family now has a light at the end of the tunnel.

Come this January 20th, 2021 – thanks to enough Americans who braved voting during a killer pandemic – the Orange Monster won’t be President any more.

On this Thanksgiving, that is indeed something for you and for those of us in the rest of the world who care about freedom and democracy, and human justice and protecting the environment for present and future generations to be thankful for.

In this spirit, members of “The Lincoln Project” – a team of former U.S. Republican Party operatives who worked hard with appropriately stinking video ads to defeat Trump in the recent election – put together a wonderful Thanksgiving video that I wish to share here.

Finally, for many past years during the week of American Thanksgiving, my wife Mary and I would be on Cape Cod, Massachusetts, enjoying time with Steve and Michele Rowan, innkeepers of a wonderful old inn called Old Sea Pines, and a large gathering of mutual friends.

This year, we are isolating in our home, as are they in theirs, with all of the memories of those past Thanksgivings at the Old Sea Pines in to help keep us warm.

Love and Peace to All of Them Too.
