Everything's Amazing and Nobody's Happy

It's Thanksgiving morning and I'm thankful for my many, many blessings. Not the least of them is my freedom.

We all fail to appreciate what we have. It's simply human nature. At least one day each year, we're reminded to think about how lucky we really are, to take stock of the miracles of everyday life that surround us.

I coincidently ran across this video this morning. It's a clip from the Conan O'Brian show, an interview with a comedian I never knew by name previously. His name is Louis CK. He talks about how everyone fails to appreciate what they have. It's funny, and like all good comedy, it makes a point.

It really gets rolling when he talks about "the crappiest generation" becoming frustrated when they don't get an immediate response on their cell phone, and it peaks when he talks about the guy in the airplane who gets pissed because he lost his internet connection at 35,000 feet above the earth.

I wish you all a grateful Thanksgiving
