"It's Time to Give Thanks"

With Thanksgiving being tomorrow, I thought what better topic to write about than everything in this country we have to give thanks for. As the country appears to be going deeper into an economic depression, unemployment steadily increasing, and the holiday season just around the corner, many people are having a hard time finding something to be thankful about. For me, the first thing that comes to my mind is November 4, 2008. Why? DEMOCRACY! On November 4, 2008, the liberties and freedoms which this country stands for and was founded on stood up and showed the rest of the world that anything is possible in the United States of America. Whether you voted for Obama or McCain, it doesn't matter. The fact that you had a choice is what everyone in America should be thankful for. Just as precious as our right to vote in this country, it is our right to a trial by jury. Over the past few years, special interest groups more concerned about corporate profits than individual rights have done everything in their power to erode and eliminate American's right to a trial by jury. However, it's still here. As you gather around the dinner table on Thursday with friends and family, do not dwell on all of the negative news we hear but rather focus on the positives. Take a moment to recognize that we live in the greatest country in the world and each and every one of us has the right under the U.S. Constitution to participate in our government. Focus on the people around you and how lucky you are to have people who care for you and love you. Focus on the simple fact that there is food on your table and a roof over your head. Yes your portfolio may have taken a hit like the stock market, but guess what, you're still here to fight and live another day. One last thing, I want to take the time to thank each and every one of our clients for allowing us to help you and your families during such difficult times in your lives. For the attorneys at Abraham & Watkins, it's more than just a job. It's helping you and being thankful to have the opportunity to do it. Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
