Speak Out: It’s Thanksgiving, What Are You Thankful For?

Hey, guys! We here at Adam4Adam would like to wish all of our users from the US a Happy Thanksgiving! 

We are also taking this opportunity to remind everyone that 2 days ago, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) had sent a health advisory for US consumers against the consumption of romaine lettuce as it may have been contaminated with E. coli. The outbreak started in October and reportedly, there are 11 states affected so far: California, Connecticut, Illinois, Massachusetts, Maryland, Michigan, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, and Wisconsin. Read about the outbreak in full here. 

The CDC also advised the public to practice food safety for their Thanksgiving meals especially for raw turkey and raw chicken because of an ongoing salmonella outbreak. Read the details here as it also includes the story of recalled products due to possible salmonella contamination.  

We are also sending love to Adam4Adam users and their respective families in California who were affected with the devastation caused by the wildfires. Indeed, it’s been quite a year and although it is hard to have a thankful heart during trying times, in the end this is what Thanksgiving Day is for: learning how to have a grateful heart. Because no matter how many times we fall down today, we can always rebuild our lives tomorrow; that we are never truly alone in times of hardships because there’s always a friend or a family to share our sorrows with. For A4A, Thanksgiving is a time to reflect and be thankful for everything like our jobs, our health, our loved ones, pets, talents, and for many other little things that bring joy in our daily lives.  

What about you, our dear Adam4Adam user, what are you thankful for? 

Happy Thanksgiving!

    What to be thankful for?

    I survived the war while I brought ‘comfort and aide’ to the wounded. I held the hands of many men who died while I held their hands. I gave them their last rites and I put one of their two dog tags between their two front teeth.

    I did save many but I could not save more of them or save them all. I am thankful that I served with honor, dignity, pride and service. It makes today, 22/11/’18 a peaceful day but a quiet day.

    I watched, the man-I-loved, be put into the ground and I spoke to his widow. I heard the praise and witnessed the sacrifice. All I could do was say ‘goodbye’ for now.

    I am ‘truly’ thankful but I wish that I would be even more peaceful?

    Hey Dave,
    I want to say I am thankful for you buddy, I believe sometimes I get moderated because what I try to say here gets twisted, but its okay, because I can see where you are trying to go with the blogs and I often feel we are better because we talk and share our thoughts. So, I hope you know I have never intentionally tried to deminish your input when trying to counter those who sadly RANT about silly pointless negative things!

    Also, I would say I am Thankful for guys like Nathan, above ^^^. He sounds like a HERO to me, and I thank him for sharing his voice with us, and I am proud that he is here SHARING who he is.

      Happy Thanksgiving dear! I don’t think I ever “blocked” your comment though. I just block comment of users that don’t behave properly or “scream” or call names to others. If your opinion is different, it is always welcome. I don’t own the truth! 🙂

      I wish to thank you for what you wrote. It is appreciated. I chose to serve and I served well. It was an honor and a privilege to do what I did.

      My brother did not come back in ’67. It was ‘God’s Will’, and I did not question. I do not question, now, either.

      I wish you well!

        Nathan, I’d like to say I KNOW WHO YOU ARE, but I do not. I have read something I believe you wrote a while back, (and that ‘your bro’ felt it too, but you guys did NOT go there). I am sad that there are few people today who BELIEVE in HONOR, and in doing the correct things. I hope you are proud of the man you are because like I said earlier:


        Also, to the guys below, who wrote so much gratefulness, my heart is fuller because you have shared here! Nathan, I hope you see that NJ called you out too! Thank you for your service and giving your kindness and love to those who did not make it, it is an honor to be your BROTHER!

    I don’t do “Thanksgiving” as a holiday, as its lost some of its meaning for me, personally.

    I do however by prayer, give thanks ever day in the morning for having awaken and again at night just before bed for good health and three healthful-square meals enjoyed in good health, the roof over my head. And, that my family is just fine.

    I am thankful for my husband, who vowed to be my biggest fan on the day we were married and has never once let me down. I am also extremely thankful for the online community of writers and readers who are making a difference in the world. You guys inspire me.
